A little corruption goes a long way in this drolly discursive comedy from celebrated French-Canadian filmmaker Denys Arcand (director of the Oscar-winning The Barbarian Invasions). When altruistic Montreal malcontent Pierre-Paul (Alexandre Landry) witnesses a botched bank robbery, he makes off with the money and then experiences a crisis of conscience—seeking the services of a high-class escort (Maripier Morin) and an ex-con economist (Remy Girard) in a money-laundering scheme until the authorities catch up with him.
In French with English subtitles.
