Synopsis

Director Bertrand Tavernier's black comedy about a bumbling West African police chief who decides to take revenge on his oppressors. Stationed in a remote town in Senegal, ineffectual police chief Lucien Cordier (Philippe Noiret) is routinely harrassed by thugs and nagged by his adulterous wife Huguette (Stephane Audran). Pushed to the limits, Lucien finally flips, embarking on a killing spree aimed at ridding himself of his tormentors and anyone else who has ever slighted him.
