Often exploring themes of addiction, sexual power games, and compulsive
behavior, Barbet Schroeder's film Tricheurs (Cheaters) is a
powerfully impudent look into the world of some rather glamorous gambling
addicts. In yet another fascinating role, Bulle Ogier is cast among a
stylish milieu of gamblers and casinos, on the Portuguese island of Madera.
There she becomes involved with a slick gambling scheme to run the roulette
wheel. Tricheurs also features an appearance from the film's
cinematographer Robby Muller, long-time Jim Jarmusch DOP and collaborator.
