Coup de torchon

Bertrand Tavernier / FR, 1981 / 128 min.

Anyone admiring Isabelle Huppert for her cool acting style will be surprised to see Coup de torchon. Huppert stars as the brazen mistress of an ineffectual French policeman (Philippe Noiret) in former French West Africa. When he finally gets a grip on himself it all ends in murder. The all-star French cast includes the elegant Stéphane Audran.
