Mr. Devereaux is a powerful man. A man who handles billions of dollars every day. A man who controls the economic fate of nations. A man driven by a frenzied and unbridled sexual hunger. A man who dreamed of saving the world and who cannot save himself. A terrified man. A lost man.
The $60.000-a-month three-story house Simone (Jacqueline Bisset) rented for Mr. Devereaux's (Gérard Depardieu) stay while under house arrest, was the actual house Dominique Strauss-Kahn's wife, Anne Sinclair, rented in 2011. It is located in Tribeca, New York. See more »

A fascinating and uncompromising insight into the life of a man. Ferrara signs here one of its best ever movie and Depardieu reveals once again the full extent of his talent.
The fall of the mighty sick of his sexual impulses (the film spares neither sex scenes priced nor the brutal attempts to put a woman in bed). The case itself and its judicial suites are underdeveloped. Abel Ferrara is particularly interested in conversations between the Devereaux couple (Depardieu and Jacqueline Bisset) in the famous New York apartment where he was under house arrest, the ones everyone has imagined but never heard.
A great movie.
