Le Paltoquet Film Poster


Highly stylised, existentialist comedy thriller directed by Michel Deville. Jeanne Moreau and Michel Piccoli play the proprietors of a deserted café-bar to which the same four card players return night after night: a doctor (Richard Bohringer), a tradesman (Phillippe Léotard), a journalist (Daniel Auteuil) and a professor (Claude Piéplu). Fanny Ardant plays Lotte, a beautiful young woman in white who hangs seductively around the bar while the others play. When a police commissioner begins investigating a murder case, the four card players all become suspects - but nothing is quite as it seems.
