J'ai vu tuer Ben Barka


Did anyone see the killer?

It was him!

He killed him!

Yes, it was him...

Surrounded by cops. What a way to go.

After the life I've led and would lead.

You don't always choose your end,

nor your beginning.

You don't real Iy choose much.

You choose to believe

and that's something.

Hope helps you live.

It can kill you too.

this proves it.

It's me, boys, it's me here.

the scandal-maker.

the loudmouth who saw too much.

Me, Georges Figon, the crook,

the liar and shit-stirrer

wanted throughout France.

Go on, turn the place upside down.

Don't mind me.


Life was more fun back then.

At the UN, this is how

the Soviet president disagreed.

In Cuba, Castro made the people laugh

and terrified the Americans.

In Vietnam

Ho Chi' Mi'nh had his beard pulled.

In Peking,

they waved Mao's little red book

and he looked delighted.

there were uprisings everywhere,

above all in the South

in the third World.

their most legitimate right

is the right to dignity.

Only then

will a new age have dawned in Africa.

American political

and economic domination is at its peak.

This is a tri-continental challenge,

a way for the people of three continents

to band together against imperialism.

the third World.

the former colonies...

the energy came from there,

from the "damned of the earth"

who were getting organised.

At General de Gaulle's press briefing...

France was run by an old general

and, officially, put on a stern face.

But life was great,

times were good, people had friends.

I had just got out of jail

and had become a TV star.

for one night and incognito,

but a star anyway.

You may have met on the street

but that's all you share.


you live in different worlds.

You don't live, think or feel

in the same way.

You and he are on different sides.

You'd only come into contact

if this man shot you to rob you.

He's a hood.

Would you write the screenplay for me?

Why not, if you pay me well.

Of course. We won't haggle over money.

Could it interest someone?


It could be a subject for Franju.

Georges Franju. Eyes Without A Face

with Pierre Brasseur. Great film.

And Thrse Desqueyroux

from Mauriac's novel.

He's a good director.

He's a "regular guy".

That's what hoods call each other.

A good title. The Regular Guys.

What do you think?

Of your car? Perfect.

Good engine, English elegance,

Swiss precision.

What more do you want?

Fewer parking fines.

This car's a magnet for them.

You needn't worry about that soon.

We'll all be rich.

No more parking fine worries.

No more hard times and seedy schemes...

Didn't you get rich in photo novels?

Aren't they outdated now?

I like them.

Marguerite, can I borrow your car

to run some errands?

Bring it back by six.

I promise.

Take good care of it.

And you take care too.

Mr Figon...

Lemarchand, the lawyer, is here.

I'm sorry, Pierre.

I was with Marguerite.

Duras? You're inseparable.

We were discussing a film project.

Getting into movies now?

It's her idea. We'll see.

I hope you do better than in show biz.

- Heard from the Vatican?

- You bet.

His Holiness's lawyers

could clean you out.

This pope is no fun.

Can you imagine kids

splitting their sides

to Hail Mary? Forget it.

I was counting on it.

These are all overdue.

Anything you can do?

You don't do things by halves.

I lost my French distributor

for the Swiss watches.

You can't count on honest people.

Can't you call these guys?

A Gaullist politician should calm them.

Look at this -

unsold, not even unwrapped.

Spiteful show biz gossip.
