Product Description:

The offbeat, hilarious story of the bizarre friendship between a hired killer and a suicidal shirt salesman. Remade as BUDDY BUDDY with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.

Plot Synopsis:

In this hilarious French black comedy, a hit man's plan to assassinate a witness who's testifying against the mob, runs into trouble when he encounters Pignon, a henpecked "pain in the a--." Ralph, the crime syndicate's hired gun, checks into a hotel to carry out his contract, and accidentally spies a laughably inept suicide attempt in the room next door. To make sure the police stay away from the hotel, Ralph strikes up a unique friendship with the desperate Pignon, and prevents him from taking his own life. But, Pignon manages to drag the killer into a series of madcap adventures until even the hardened criminal starts to lose his cool.
