Sara, a budding artist, arrives at Charles de Gaulle airport from Brazzaville. Three months pass, servicing customers for pimp Omar and madame Brigitte. Sara meets Tramson, a former youth worker, who promises to help her break free once she’s paid off what she owes. On Christmas Day, Sara finds her cousin dead, all their savings gone. Omar has beaten her to death. Sara explodes. Armed with a sharpened screwdriver, she tracks Omar down and stabs him in the heart. But Brigitte sees her and puts a price on her head. With Tramson’s help, Sara takes refuge in an artists’ squat. But Brigitte’s thugs are on her trail…

A collection of eight films, each the fruit of an encounter between a novelist and a filmmaker, the latter given carte blanche to adapt one of the published novels, creating a hard-boiled crime story in the B-movie tradition, exploring every nuance of genre cinema, from high farce to social criticism, by way of moral (or immoral) fables, the macabre and the romantic.

Original, then, by virtue of its novelist/filmmaker pairings as well as the casting of the films, the diversity of worlds and subjects tackled, the freedom of tone and directing styles, the humour (black, of course), the outrageousness, and always with this distance and tongue-in-cheek approach, Suite Noire takes a dark and ironic look at contemporary society, at its shady, seedy parts and murky motives. Decent citizens or nasty pieces of work, fake innocents or total bastards, serial-killers or inept murderers, young hoodlums, detectives still wet behind the ears, vengeful women, crooks and plain idiots. They whittle away at morality, confront and betray each other, fall victim to bad luck, fall into traps, shoot each other and die.
