The Good Pleasure
Adapted from the eponymous novel written by Françoise Giroud in 1983, Le Bon Plaisir brings together starred actors in a film which is equally so. After The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Repulsion, The Mississippi Siren, Donkey Skin and The Last Metro, Catherine Deneuve illuminates this dramatic comedy by Francis Girod. If François Giroud has always defended himself, the story is not unlike that of François Mitterand and Anne Pingeot with the discovery of their hidden daughter Mazarine in the mid-90s.
She plays Claire Després, a young woman who had an affair with a man who became President of the Republic (Jean-Louis Trintignant). While leading a quiet life, her purse is stolen, which contains a letter revealing that a child has been born from this relationship.
After having informed the Head of State of this incident, Claire is wiretapped by the Minister of the Interior (Michel Serrault) who tries everything to find this letter and thus prevent its content from being disclosed. But it was without counting on the thief, Pierre (Hippolyte Girardot), who is also leading the investigation on his side.
