Plot Sypnosis:

4K RESTORATION COMPLETED ON BEHALF OF STUDIOCANAL

While trying to track down a deadbeat customer, door-to-door salesman Franck Poupart (Patrick Dewaere) encounters Mona (Marie Trintignant), a teenage sexpot living with her miserly aunt. After being dumped by his wife and thrown in jail by his boss, Franck agrees to help Mona kill her aunt and make off with her millions. Unfortunately, their scheme backfires, and Franck sees his luck takes an even darker turn for the worse. Dewaere, the too-soon-gone premiere wild man of '70s French cinema, gives a live-wire, no-holds-barred performance, playing the entirely-amoral Thompson protagonist to the hilt, his increasingly frenzied star turn driving the film headlong towards derangement.
