  • FIRST NAME CARMEN Alternative


Crime, drama, romance. Jean, a former filmmaker who lives in voluntary retirement in a Parisian clinic, in spite of being diagnosed sane, is visited by his niece Carmen who asks if she and some friends can borrow his apartment, ostensibly to do some film tests for a wealthy patron. However, this is a cover for a kidnap plot concocted by Carmen and her lover Joseph, and she uses her uncle to set up the tycoon victim unwittingly. Passion, jealousy and betrayal follow, as the police prevent the kidnapping and the kidnapping gang are all shot, apart from Joseph.
