Storyline

Since the suicide of his wife, Jacques Loursat has gone downhill. Estranged from his daughter, his lawyer's pratice in ruins, he consoles himself with drink. One night he is woken by a gunshot and catches sight of a young man fleeing the house. Isabelle, his daughter, claims to know nothing about it, even when he finds the body of a young man. Isabelle hangs around with a gang of spoiled young people who have no shortage of money, and is in love with Joel, an ambitious boy involved in drug dealing. Antoine, from a more modest background, is in love with her. When the police start investigating Joel's murder, Antoine becomes the ideal suspect. Written by Anonymous

Great Belmondo movie...
28 October 2005 | by sabyelvisSee all my reviews

I had seen this movie years ago, when I was a kid, and I remember that I was very impressed by the way Belmondo, who usually played either very charming and light-hearted characters or tough, "Dirty Harry-like" cops, portrayed this alcoholic lawyer forced to get back on the saddle, but I guess I was too young to fully understand the meanings of the story. Well, I just saw this film again last night, and thought it was just brilliant. Belmondo's performance is truly one of his bests, and the supporting cast is quite impressive, with Odette Laure, Cristiana Reali, Georges Geret, Sandrine Kiberlain and Pierre Vernier. Lautner's direction is very atmospheric, the dialogs are subtle and even if the plot can seem a little week at first sight, it's much deeper than it looks. So my rating is 8 out of 10, Belmondo at his best!
