PREVIEW FOR THE RAG
In 1938, the little African town of Bourkassa Ourbangi has only one police officer, Lucien Cordier (Philippe Noiret), who everyone makes fun of. The constant criticism eventually has an effect on Cordier: he becomes conscious of his mediocrity, and sets his mind on cleaning up the town.

In the belief that he is henceforth invested with a purifying mission, he begins by killing two pimps who run the local brothel, then a racist fellow, then a black man who was witness to the murder... Cordier is now convinced that he has to get rid of the bad guys who make others suffer.

He uses his mistress Rose (Isabelle Hippert) - a nymphomaniac and the village school teacher - to kill his wife and her paramour. Rose realizes that he has become a monster, but World War II erupts, and the colonial administration forgets about Bourkassa Ourbangi.

A gallery of colorful characters set against the background of colonial Africa of the late thirties, The Rag sees Noiret give a masterly composition of a "mad Godman", close to Galabru's character in Le Juge et L'Assassin. The Rag may be a mystical fable and a criminal adventure tale, but it is also a film with a pessimistic black humor.
