Amidst the confines of a decaying Parisian hotel, Détective is set in motion when miserably married couple François (Nathalie Baye) and Emile (Claude Brasseur) attempt to collect a debt from mob-plagued boxing manager, Jim Fox Warner (Johnny Halliday). Meanwhile, house detective Laurent Terzieff tries to solve an old murder case. Made in 1985, Detective is a characteristically barbed and witty take on modern morality and popular culture. Playfully riffing on the charisma of its many stars, the film also marked the feature debut of actress Julie Delpy.
