Storyline

Marleau travaille comme gardien de nuit dans un grand studio de production de films : Popcorn international. L'emploi lui convient parce qu'une carrière de comédien achevée en queue de poisson lui a laissé un goût amer. Marleau ne désire plus que tranquillité et anonymat. Le sort en décidera autrement quand un mystérieux individu assassine un à un les patrons de Popcorn international, annonçant chacun de ses crimes par un air mélancolique de trombone. Qu'ont fait ces hommes pour se mériter pareille vengeance ? Marleau a intérêt à le découvrir, et vite : l'assassin laisse sur chaque cadavre un indice l'incriminant, lui. Pour ajouter à ses soucis, sa fille Josée, une perspicace adolescente férue d'informatique, lui rend une visite au terme de laquelle elle se convainc qu'elle seule saura sauver son défaitiste de père. De son côté, l'inspecteur de police Graselli compte bien trouver son profit dans une affaire qui devrait lui valoir avancement et gloire.

quite entertaining
16 September 1999 | by radlovSee all my reviews

If I'm not mistaken, I've seen this film a couple of years ago on a French TV channel. A series of mysterious murders is committed. In the end it turns out that they have been orchestrated by a malevolent artificial intelligence. An important role in the story is also played by a gang of petty criminals, directed by a resolute young woman, called "La Comtesse". I would not claim it is a great movie. The story is rather farfetched, but it is a well made, entertaining movie, that certainly deserves more than the average of 5.8 given to it by the viewers who voted on it. I would give it 7 out of 10.
