A roguish burglar, thoroughly disrupts the lives of an impoverished couple, sexually and otherwise.
Bob, a seductive, bisexual thief, entices Antoine and Monique, a bored and dissatisfied couple, into joining him as he robs wealthy homes. Turned on by the thrill of thievery, the couple soon abandons their world of middle-class predictability and a bizarre love triangle develops between the three in this darkly comedic sex caper. Starring Gerard Depardieu, Michel Blanc and Miou-Miou.
A petty thief pushes his way into the lives of an unhappily married couple, and irrevocably changes their world.
Bob, a self-confident, blustering criminal, meets Antoine and Monique at a restaurant and offers to help them get over their recent run of bad luck. But he has an ulterior motive: he'd very much like to seduce Antoine. Although Antoine initially resists Bob's flirtations, before too long he finds himself succumbing to the other man's charms...
- Screened at both the Cannes Film Festival and at the New York Film Festival in 1986.
- Bertrand Blier originally wrote the role of Antoine for the actor Patrick Dewaere, who starred with Depardieu in Blier's "Going Places." Sadly, Dewaere committed suicide in 1982.
