A newly retired IRS inspector meets Raoul, an extrovert and unscrupulous broker who suggests him to invest his savings in sugar.
Jacques Rouffio teams once again with Georges Conchon, with whom he made Seven deaths by prescription et Horizon to adapt this real life story of a scam on the price of sugar, who eventually cost 66 billion Francs to the French government in 1974. A tremendous farce, ferocious and ludicrous, the perfect playground for Gerard Depardieu and Jean Carmet, as well as Michel Piccoli and his unforgettable performance as Grezillo. Accurate, more than ever.
