The sudden passing of a French politician was summarily written off by the authorities as suicide. Young journalist Paul Kerjean (Patrick Dewaere) had his doubts-but as his investigations uncovers ever more links to a merger-minded American conglomerate, his activities might wind up compromising more than his job security. Dewaere gave his penultimate performance in Henri Vernuil's white-knuckle thriller; Mel Ferrer, Jeanne Moreau, Charles Denner co-star. 132 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: French; Subtitles: English; audio commentary; theatrical trailer. In French with English subtitles.
