"Un coup de maître" is a French black comedy film that follows the story of Maxime, an unscrupulous art dealer, and Paul, a socially-awkward but talented painter who has been Maxime's friend for a long time. The two find themselves in deep financial trouble and come up with an outrageous plan to save themselves.

Maxime is on the brink of bankruptcy and desperately needs a way out. He realizes that he has an extraordinary insurance policy on one of Paul's paintings, which would guarantee a substantial amount of money if the artwork were to be destroyed. Inspired by this, Maxime concocts a devious scheme to fake the theft of the painting and claim the insurance money. He approaches Paul with the idea, presenting it as their only chance to secure their financial futures.

Paul, driven by his timid nature and loyalty to Maxime, agrees to go along with the plan reluctantly. He begins to meticulously create a replica of his own painting, intending to replace the original with it after the theft is staged. However, Paul becomes consumed by the pressure to perfect the replica, resulting in a string of comedic mishaps and disasters during the painting process.

As the duo progresses with their audacious scheme, they find themselves faced with numerous obstacles and unforeseen complications. Along the way, they encounter eccentric characters such as a cunning insurance investigator and a seductive journalist who becomes suspicious of their actions. Their plan becomes a painfully farcical endeavor as they struggle to navigate the complexities and absurdities of their circumstances.

As the day of the staged theft approaches, tensions rise between Maxime and Paul. Their friendship is tested as doubts and fears begin to take hold, causing a rift between them. With both their reputations and futures hanging in the balance, they must decide how far they are willing to go to see their plan through.

"Un coup de maître" combines elements of comedy, suspense, and farce, as it delves into the deceptive and extravagant world of art dealing. In this high-stakes game, Maxime and Paul find themselves on a wild and humorous journey that forces them to confront their own greed, loyalty, and the consequences of their actions.
