Directed by Alain Resnais
Jean-Paul Belmondo stars in this depression-era corruption drama from director Alain Resnais.
Based on the life of 1930s financier-cum-swindler Alexandre Stavisky (Belmondo), the story follows his lavish lifestyle as he wines and bribes his way through the French political establishment of the day.
Eventually arrested and imprisoned, Stavisky's ability to continue his dubious business transactions in jail, quickly leads to claims that he is being protected by those in high places.
With public pressure growing daily, the resulting national scandal soon threatens civil unrest and has far-reaching implications for both the government, and Stavinsky.
