Cast: Bulle Ogier, Jean-Luc Bideau, Jacques Denis In one of the great films of the 1970s, two journalists (Bideau and Denis), contracted to write a teleplay about an “accidental” gun death, find themselves drawn into perhaps too-intimate relationships with the surviving witness/suspect: an alluring, spontaneous working-class girl, Rosemonde (the always extraordinary Ogier), who alone knows the truth of what happened.
