When Lise’s car bumps Antoine’s bike, they recognize each other from a brief fling 20 years before while at the Sorbonne. He’s now a professor of Greek; she hates to tell him she’s a police inspector. A call interrupts their first dinner date: a Deputy of the National Assembly has been murdered.

A visually sumptuous 'policier', which renders nearly every frame a small work of art. This happens due to the meticulous color compositions and the elegant camerawork, which discloses gently the floral dimension of the film in all its splendor. Intelligently scripted, its value-added credit comes from the superb duo, with Girardot and Noiret complementing one another as they search for the murderer. Alric dazzles.
