Weekend was cast by Roland (Jean Yanne) and Corinne (Mireille Darc). Corinne wants to make sure that she gets all the inheritance money to be left by her very ill father. So she and Roland make a plan to somehow kill them so the wife doesn’t get any of the money. It’s like wow are you serious? They imagine that they’ll die in a crash every time they know they’re going out. Then the two inform their lovers they’ll share the money with them, but I do not believe that for one minute. You can’t trust people like this because if they would go so far as to kill their flesh and blood they would kill anybody. These two are very selfish and shouldn’t be trusted by anyone. For example, we find in the movie that Corinne is cheating on her husband and Roland is doing the same.
Corrine and Roland plan a trip to go see her father, but they get involved in a car crash and by the time they get to Corrine’s parents house they are too late. The father has died, left all the money to his wife and left Corrine nothing. Roland & Corinne believe they’ve found the perfect murder; by putting their mother’s body in with one of the pre-existing car wrecks and set it on fire.
In my opinion you have to be special characters to even play a person like that. Even though this is on film playing a rotten role could be detrimental to your popularity with the people who watch the film. I personally know I didn’t like these two and no matter what other movies they may have played in every time I saw Jean or Mireille in a film they would remind me of the dirty rotten role they played in weekend. These two are some sick minded individuals. In the end they don’t get what they want. This is a typical but true ending. If you play the role, you’re going to pay for it in the end.
