Coup de torchon / Clean Slate (1981) DVD9 Criterion Collection
Meet Lucien Cordier (Philippe Noiret): police chief of Senegal in the 1930s, and pathetic creature. His wife, Huguette (Stephane Audran) has no respect for him. Under the guise of being her brother, her lover, Nono (Eddy Mitchell), lives with her and Lucien. The local people ignore him, knowing he's never made an arrest in his life. The commanders of the army regiment stationed there make fun of him and his beliefs. And all the while, two pimps humiliate him endlessly, feeling they have the right to do so because they pay him off. Lucien is such a meek character that he eventually realizes he can kill people without ever being suspected of the crime. One dastardly deed leads to another, and Lucien is slowly stripped of his morality. His actions also lower the moral barriers for his mistress, Rose (Isabelle Huppert), his wife, and her lover.
