The 50th film from legendary French New Wave Film writer and director Claude Chabrol is a typically Hitchcockian comic thriller about a pair of con artists embroiled in a dizzying array of double-crosses.
Con artists Victor (Michel Serrault) and Betty (Isabelle Huppert) are a perfect team when it comes to cheating gamblers out of their winnings. The ever flirtatious Betty, however, has bigger plans. One in particular involves a briefcase containing five million Swiss francs of syndicate money. Before long Victor becomes suspicious of Betty's solo pursuits. Is his once-loyal partner betraying him? And what of Maurice, the owner of the briefcase, and his gangster bosses?
Chabrol directs this sleek, shadowy caper with wit and masterful restraint.
