France, 1815. After his defeat at Waterloo, Napoleon heads for exile. Royalists occupy Paris and attempt to restore the monarchy. However, the battle doesn't seem to be over. On July 6, Talleyrand, a shrewd politician of flexible convictions, invites chief of police and zealous revolutionary Fouché to supper and tries to convince him to serve the king. Over the meal they insult each other, accuse each other, and, at first sight, look like mortal enemies. But they definitely have one thing in common: they are both power-hungry. Written by
The film is identical to the play, the actors are the same and the dialogues identical. It is a film sumptuous by its dialogues of exceptional quality, unfortunately, I doubt that the subtitles or a translation can make the extraordinary subtlety, which is the problem of many French films too based on sophisticated dialogues Untranslatable or whose flavor can not be rendered with a translation.
