Synopsis / Plot
Christian Legagneur (Philippe Noiret) is a fabulously successful gameshow host who makes his living presenting softhearted fantasies for aged couples. He engages a writer, Roland Wolf (Robin Renucci), to commemorate his illustrious career in book form and they retire to Legagneur's country estate for several days of interviews. Wolf finds his host at the head of an odd household of retainers and servants happily taking care of Legagneur's suspiciously sickly stepdaughter Catherine (Anne Brochet), whom Leganeur won't trust to "incompetent" doctors. But Wolf has a suspicious side as well - he's smuggled a gun into the house and starts searching for signs of an earlier visitor, a Miss Chevalier who disappeared mysteriously.
