FULL SYNOPSIS

Former film critic [[Performer~P113794~André Téchiné~andrétéchiné]] directed and co-wrote this offbeat crime drama. Samson ([[Performer~P87517~Gérard Depardieu~gérarddepardieu]]) is a down-on-his-luck boxer who manages to win a fortune thanks to a fixed fight. However, while Samson and his girlfriend Laure ([[Performer~P374~Isabelle Adjani~isabelleadjani]]) are trying to get away with the money, he is killed by a gunman who looks just like Samson (and is also played by [[Performer~P87517~Depardieu~gérarddepardieu]]). Laure is crushed, but in time she finds herself attracted to Samson's murderous double; he is also drawn to her, and they eventually become lovers. The supporting cast includes [[Performer~P106592~Marie-France Pisier~mariefrancepisier]] and [[Performer~P8391~Jean-Claude Brialy~jeanclaudebrialy]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
