Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Jean-Louis Trintignant is probably best remembered as the racing driver in the classic French romance A Man and a Woman, but his directorial debut finds him at the opposite end of the spectrum. An undistinguished black comedy, it follows the murderous exploits of baker Jacques Dufilho, as he exacts his revenge on the jurors who sent his son to his death. Trintignant also wrote the screenplay but as far as "chopping list" films go we're not exactly in Vincent Price territory.
