  • It is 1938 in the French West Africa village of Bourkassa and the one-man police force is tired of being a doormat. In this darkly comic adaptation of Jim Thompson's "POP. 1280," hapless officer Lucien Cordier decides to take the law back into his own rightful hands and rid the town of its human waste. International actress Isabelle Huppert adds a feminine touch to the proceedings as director Bertrand Tavernier and star Philippe Noiret (THE JUDGE AND THE ASSASSIN) reunite for this meditation on the unseemly.
