Réjeanne Padovani (Réjeanne Padovani)

Filmgebeuren 96' - 1973 - Crime, Drama - Dialogue: French - Format: 35mm
Director: Denys Arcand With: Jean Lajeunesse, Luce Guilbeault
Mob boss and highway developer Vincent Padovani is hosting a dinner party at his luxurious home celebrating the opening of the new Trans-Quebec highway he just finished work on. In attendance are the Quebec MP who awarded the contract, his secretary and legal adviser, an out-of-work hitman, and the mayor of Montreal. Two events occur that threaten to disturb the evening: first, they learn from a journalist of a planned protest of the highway by a group of people who had their houses demolished during the construction. Second is the return of Padovani's estranged wife, Rejeanne, who left him for a rival mob boss. She shows up unannounced and begging to see her children and Padovani is left no choice but to handle the situation.
