1987. France. Directed by Claude Chabrol. Screenplay by Odile Barski, Chabrol. With Philippe Noiret, Robin Renucci, Anne Brochet. Chabrol's fascination with games is given its most literal and complex expression in this breezy murder mystery centering on a game show host. Successful, wealthy, and ever smiling, Christian Legagneur affectionately dominates the elderly contestants on his show, as well as his increasingly infirm godchild. But his authority and prowess are challenged when a journalist comes to his isolated country home for an extended visit. French; English subtitles. 100 min.
