Nathalie Baye portrays an interpret in charge of an inquest after the death of a writer whereas the sadly missed Philippe Leotard plays a powerful person with multiple identities.He also portrays his killer,which will remind many viewers of Borges ' "Theme of the traitor and the hero" .Director Jacques Rivette is featured as Marcel Jeaucourt,the unfortunate victim;his favorite actress,Bulle Ogier,plays also a supporting part.
