Storyline

Judith Therpauve, who was "Queen" at the time of the Resistance, is asked by her former friends, co-owners like her from the regional newspaper La Libre République, to take charge of the daily, which goes wrong. She soon realizes that the poor financial health of her newspaper is orchestrated by a businessman who wants to buy it at a low price. Judith manages to boost sales, but the unfair maneuvers follow one another and force her to sell. Little supported by her staff, feeling useless and alone, she commits suicide. Written by Patrice Chéreau

Trivia

This film was shot in 1978 in the region of Metz, which is not mentioned explicitly but that we recognize the facade of the station, which appears several times. This is the second film by Patrice Chéreau. This is a tragedy: in a twilight atmosphere and a dirty light, journalists are disillusioned, unenthusiastic, depressed or alcoholic, and no one believes in saving a newspaper that will actually sink. The failure to start is the same on arrival, but in the meantime there have been deaths. See more »
