A Feature film by Gérard Oury

    Synopsis

    After viewing an unusual film about murder and the irony of fate, a man deliberately steps in front of a slow-moving vehicle, planning to use the minor accident which should result as an alibi for his own wife's murder which he has already engineered. However, what actually occurs is a very different scenario about the "art" of murder.
