The story of pre-Revolutionary Versailles and how aristocratic courtiers gained political advancement through the ridiculing of others. Provincial hydrologist, de Malavoy (Berling), soon learns that his sharp wit may gain him the ear of the king and so royal sponsorship of his marsh-draining scheme. Leconte's finest?
An intellectual treat for those who think, a cruel comedy for those who feel
