Professional contract killer Jef Costello liquidates a nightclub owner, and while possessing an airtight alibi, he is collected by police as a possible suspect. Two witnesses explicitly state he is not the killer, but one club patron insists that he is. Police work tirelessly to crack his alibi. Masterpiece of French minimalist cinema; among the best crime films ever produced.
