A psychoanalyst gives a strange advice to a mechanic whose marriage is falling apart: to take the blame for a murder, any murder, to impress his beautiful and indifferent wife, and his patient does just that.
Samuel Le Bihan,
In 17th century France, cardinal Mazarin's death squad kills young Blanche's parents. She grows up to become a thief and steels a substance called Powder of the Devil and a coded letter that were sent to cardinal Mazarin. He is furious.
Antoine de Caunes
Stay away from that film, especially if you don't speak French! The only interest is maybe, and I say maybe, the vivid dialogues, strongly inspired by French dialogue writer Michel Audiard, which are impossible to translate and in my opinion become quickly boring, even if they're played by funny actors.
The rest of the film is just awful. No story, no pulse and especially an incredibly ugly visual style which reaches its peak during the final gunfight, probably the worst action sequence I ever saw, which proves that it needs more than few good intentions to become the new Tarantino and especially the new John Woo. But one day France will prove it can make good action films. One day...
