Based on an idea by Miloš Forman and co-written with frequent Truffaut collaborator Jean-Louis Richard, this startling satire of male arrogance again stars Berri himself as a husband left brooding when wife Juliet Berto has a one-night stand with another man. When she’s taken hostage in a bank hold-up, he’s less concerned with her safety than whether she’ll fall for her captor.
