Pas de Scandale

  • Film

Time Out says

This wry, low key satirical comedy benefits from a wonderful performance by Luchini as a disgraced businessman just out of jail. The one time captain of industry has completely reassessed his priorities. He's more interested in chatting to his chauffeur, his wife's hairdresser or ex-prison colleagues than in justifying his previous cut throat behaviour. Jacquot's trick is to take a cynical, sophisticated capitalist and turn him into a holy innocent. At times, as he bumbles around Paris, he evokes memories of Peter Sellers' gardener in Being There. The businessman's wife (Huppert) and family are perplexed by the transformation. Audiences, too, are likely to be a little baffled by a film which focuses so intently on such a quizzical, inscrutable character.
