Coup de torchon (1981)

In principle, a film starring Noiret, Huppert and Marielle and signed by Tavernier has the mark of excellence. On this occasion the achievements do not reach what could be expected but not disappoint. The pervasive violence is more internalized than visible, looking attenuated by a virulent but always refined humor. It also contributes naturalist strange atmosphere in that torrid colonial enclave.... read more

1938, in a French african colony. Lucien Cordier is the cop of this village, populated with blacks and a few whites (usually racialist and lustful). He is a washout, everyone (including his wife Huguette) humiliates him. He never arrests anyone and looks at elsewhere when a dirty trick occurs. But one day, he turns into a machiavellian exterminating angel.

"18.10.2020, YLE Areena Hiljakseen eteenpäin ajelehtiva psykologinen trilleri(hkö) 30-luvun ranskalaisessa Afrikassa. Paino on ennen kaikkea sekä ranskalaisessa siirtomaakulttuurissa ja sen epämiellyttävässä arvomaailmassa, että erinomaisissa hahmoissa ja näiden välisessä dynamiikassa. Laiskasilmäinen ja lupsakka Philippe Noiret loistaa pääosassa, mitä energinen ja sähisevä Isabelle Huppert tukee mainiosti."
