The Man with One Red Shoe

Synopsis: Cooper, the deputy director of the CIA, wants to be the director. So, he tries to make it appear that the director is corrupt so that he will resign or be removed. The director appears before a committee and asks for some time to prepare his defense. The director goes home and asks his man Brown to join him. He then shows Brown that Cooper is bugging him. That's when he decides to turn the tables on Cooper by feeding him some false information. And that information is that there's a man, who might be able to clear him of the charges against him, will be arriving at the airport, so he tells Brown to meet him. The Director tells Brown to just pick someone who is arriving at the airport thus making Cooper believe that he is the man who can help the director. Brown picks Richard cause he is wearing mismatched shoes, one of them being red. So Cooper sets up surveillance on Richard and sends his femme fatale, Maddy to come on to him and find out what he knows. While Maddy is playing, Richard

and Reese with you. I trust them.


we've got to nail Cooper.

I need this person to testify

on my behalf at the hearing.

He can clear up everything about Morocco.

I can't hear anything.

- Sounds like he knew he was being bugged.

- Maybe, maybe not.

We don't have much time.

Exactly 46 hours and 18 minutes

to find out who this guy is.

Sir, this man I'm meeting, the one

at the airport? Who is he, please?

- Pick anyone.

- I'm sorry, sir. What?

Don't ask me!

Brown, pick anyone.

Someone out of the crowd.

The more anonymous, the better.

Who you choose isn't important.

He'll be used to bait the hook.

All that matters is that Cooper swallows it.

United Airlines flight 179

from Denver now arriving gate 22B.

Brown, pick anyone.

It doesn't matter who.

Where's this guy coming from,

Mr. Brown?

Flight 800 from Chicago now arriving...

- He's coming from Chicago.

- He's coming in from Chicago.

- What's this guy look like?

- That's none of our concern.

The rabbi.

Brilliant! He ain't here

for no Bar Mitzvah, right?

One of the Sony softball team?

What if he doesn't show?

What if he got lost? What if he's sick?

What if you shut up?

The black dude?

The yuppie?

The nun with the shades?

She's a narc, right?

There he is.

Which one?

The man with one red shoe.

Hello. It's been a long time.

Excuse me. I, uh... I thought I knew you.


- Richard!

- Honey, he can't hear you.


- I just want to ask him something.

- Why can't you ask him tonight?

- Please, Morris?

- All right, all right, all right, all right.

I'm sorry. Oh.

Excuse me.

Uh... excuse me.

Drew, Richard. Unarmed.

Buttock right, wallet - five dollars in change.

Quadriceps, left - bag of nuts.

Foot, left - one red shoe.

Francis Veber

Francis Paul Veber (born 28 July 1937) is a French film director, screenwriter and producer, and playwright. He has written and directed both French and American films. Eight French-language films with which he has been involved, as either writer or director or both, have been remade as English-language Hollywood films: Le grand blond avec une chaussure noire (as The Man with One Red Shoe), L'emmerdeur (as Buddy Buddy), La Cage aux Folles (as The Birdcage), Le Jouet (as The Toy), Les Compères (as Fathers' Day), La chèvre (as Pure Luck), Les Fugitifs (as Three Fugitives), and Le dîner de cons (as Dinner for Schmucks). He also wrote the screenplay for My Father the Hero, the 1994 American remake of the French-language film Mon père, ce héros. Some of his screenplays started as theater plays (for instance, Le dîner de cons). This theatrical experience contributes to his films' tight structure, resulting in what has been called "marvels of economy".Many of his French comedies feature recurring types of characters, named François Pignon (a bungler) and François Perrin (a bully). more…
