Détective is a 1985 French crime film directed by Jean-Luc Godard. It was entered into the 1985 Cannes Film Festival.[1]


The film takes places completely in and around a grand hotel. Prospero used to be the hotel's private detective, but was fired two years previously when he was not able to figure out who killed a guest known only as The Prince. As the film opens, Prospero is staying at the hotel, determined to solve the case. Helping him are his nephew, Inspector Neveau, and Neveau's girlfriend Arielle. Emile is at the hotel to settle a debt with Jim Fox Warner, a fight promoter. Emile's airline shuttle service is failing, as is his marriage to Francoise, who joins him at the hotel and ends up having an affair with Jim. Also on the scene are Tiger Jones, Jim's protege, and an Old Mafioso, who seems to be on an endless journey around the hotel lobby accompanied by a young girl.[2]
