Hapless Lucien Cordier (Philippe Noiret) is the beleaguered police chief of a small town in French colonial Senegal. The local criminals openly mock Lucien's inability to put a stop to their illegal enterprises, and his unfaithful and shrewish wife Huguette (Stéphane Audran) is having a blatant affair with Nono (Eddy Mitchell), whom Lucien believes is her brother. When the humiliations finally become too much for him to bear, Lucien takes matters into his own hands.
Director: Bertrand Tavernier
