Tchao pantin 1983
Lambert, a withdrawn middle-aged man, works the night shift at a Parisian petrol station. He has no friends, no family; his only companion is his bottle of rum. One night, a young Arab man, Bensoussan, enters his shop - and his life. This stranger also has no family, lives alone in a dingy room, and scrapes a living as a drugs dealer. A friendship develops between the two solitary men - but this is brutally cut short when Bensoussan is killed in front of Lambert's eyes. Realising that his new friend was murdered by his drug dealing associates, Lambert sets out to avenge his death - assisted by Lola, a punk girl who met Bensoussan briefly. In so doing, he manages to face up to his own tragic past...

Coluche, born Michel Gerard Joseph Colucci, was best known as a comedian and comic actor, and his work still has a major cult following in France because of its biting political satire and its readiness to push the limits of “taste”; this rare dramatic role brought Coluche a Cesar Award for Best Actor.
