I Love a Man in Uniform

Fortnight 1993, Feature film, 1 h 39

Synopsis

He earns a living in banking. The day he gets a small part in the  » Crimewave” TV series, his life changes completely. Henry Adler is certainly a strange character. This 31-year-old bank clerk who dreams about being an actor lives a remote and solitary life far from the bustle of the city but cannot escape its omnipresent violence. Deeply upset by the robbery of his bank, he becomes obsessed with the amorality of the world he lives in. But is he really capable of dispensing justice? Appearances are not always deceptive. Henry leaves it up to Flanagan, the policeman he is to play in “Crimewave”, tirelessly rehearsing the part, going so far as to put on his uniform. Carried away by the sudden authority he projects, a gun at his waist, he patrols the streets, reprimanding offenders, like a pathetic buffoon caught out at his own dangerous game. Everything becomes confused…
