MPAA Rating:

French film critic Bertrand Tavernier made his directorial debut in The Clockmaker. The title character, played by Tavernier’s “alter ego” Philipe Noiret, is benumbed by the nihilistic activities of his son Sylvain Rougerie. Arrested on charges ranging from arson to murder, Rougerie offers the standard-issue explanation: the establishment is full of pigs who deserve to be “offed”. Noiret must ask himself if his son’s behavior is the result of stifling under the bourgeois lifestyle that Noiret has always championed. The Clockmaker is based on the Georges Simenon story L’Horlonger de Saint-Paul, which was also the French title of this film.
