Starring pop singer Eddy Mitchell as the referee Maurice who is hunted by an axe-wielding Michel Serrault as a deranged supporter. He offers a penalty to one of the teams, allowing them to win the match, but this causes a furore amongst the supporters of the opposing team. Watch out: Mocky himself appears as a police inspector.
