With his mauve taxi, the old philosopher Dr. Seamus Scully (Fred Astaire) runs around the small green roads of the south of Ireland, becoming confident of his patients, while trying to help them find their way.
As every summer, Georges Lajoie, his wife Ginette and grown-up son Léon go on holiday to Loulou's campsite. They join old friends, the Schumachers and the Colins. Brigitte Colin, the daughter, is quite a pretty young girl now. One day, Georges rapes and murders her. He hides the body near the barracks of the immigrant Arab workers. The racism of the campers will do the rest... A virulent lampoon against the average Frenchman's racism.Written by
Yves Boisset's diatribe against latent xenophobia will leave you badly bruised but otherwise enlightened
Based on the novel by Bastid and Martens, Yves Boisset's diatribe against crass stupidity, cowardice and ordinary racism is as relevant and powerful today as it was when it first came out, through its uncompromising and realistic depiction of how latent xenophobia can often result in dramatic consequences. A controversial piece that needs to be seen even more so today when racism and rape allegations are more rife than ever.
