I did not expect too much from this French movie. It begins like a political intrigue when a middle aged novelist is contacted by a mysterious man, played by André Dussolier, who proposes him to write a book against a main politician, then the film continues with a sort of philosophical and intellectual message when the novelist fears for his own life and escapes in the country side, among an outcasts community - left winged community, of course. This film is a kind of existentialist tale about the meaning of the human fight to save his rights against oppression. Those who have known May 1968 revolution in France will appreciate. But this scheme is full of bitterness. The first minutes of the film are not explained. Who is the man abducted by the others? This is not a bad film, but certainly not for wide audiences. Whilst I watched it, I thought of another french feature: L'EXERCICE DE L'ETAT. But at a lasser scale.
