Comedy Of Power Film Poster


Claude Chabrol directs this French drama, which is inspired by real events surrounding the fraud inquiry into the French oil company Elf Aquitaine in the mid-1990s. Isabelle Huppert stars as Jeanne Charmant-Killman, a tough and shrewd judge assigned to the case of Michel Humeau (Francois Berleand), the corrupt president of a national corporation who thinks he is above the law. As the case unfolds, revealing the cynical and immoral financial dealings of a welter of public figures, Jeanne becomes increasingly intoxicated with the power she wields by sending these powerful wrongdoers to jail.
