Crime 1938, Bourkassa, a small town in French East Africa. Philippe Noiret in a terrific performance plays a passive police officer who lets everyone push him around until he discovers that a few well-placed killings can get him what he wants. Brutal, darkly humorous and brilliantly done film noir.
