Cassiers tosses out the myth of the virtuous society
In his work, Guy Cassiers often descends to the darkest depths of the human soul. After ‘Atropa’ and ‘De welwillenden’ he further pursues his fascination for the dark side with an adaptation of the film ‘Coup De Torchon’, a French psychological thriller from 1981 by Bertrand Tavernier and starring Isabelle Huppert.
Lucien Cordier is the only policeman in an African village in a French colony. He’s not averse to corruption, he doesn’t get much respect and he’s being cheated on by his wife. Then something snaps inside of him and he turns from a relatively feckless character into a ruthless killing machine. All out of scruples, he engages in psychological games and takes down anyone who steps on his toes.
Cassiers and a top cast – including Katelijne Damen and Koen De Grave – expose the mechanisms of power that shape communities, offering a powerful insight into the human psyche. ‘Bagaar’ tosses out the myth of the virtuous society and shows the moral bankruptcy of the Western world.
