Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this French philosophical drama, Agis (Georges Moustaki) is a professor of philosophy who seeks to live the peace and love he talks about. He leaves his wife and child and moves into a poor section of the Arab quarter with two disciples. One of them is a school dropout, the other an Arab poet who is also a drug pusher. The professor strangles a prostitute for no reason that he can determine, except that on that day he had no drugs. A policeman catches up to him and is preparing to bring him in, but the professor manages to convert him to his philosophy.
