This French political melodrama deals with the conflict between the political ambitions of Julien (Alain Delon) and his love for his mistress, fashion-model Creezy (Sydne Rome). Based on the novel Creezy, which won the "Prix de Goncourt" in 1969, it tells of Julien's schemes to win a ministerial post. He spends his time meeting with his mentor's widow (Jeanne Moreau), who has now become Julien's political advisor, fantasizing about Creezy, working to placate his radical son, and suffering pangs of conscience about his wife, now confined to a mental institution. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

CREEZY (or "Le Race des Seigneurs") might as well be titled "Crazy" or "Sleazy," given the decision to cast the then-current model/sex goddess Sydne Rome in the lead. She possesses the charm, beauty and acting talent of the young Farrah Fawcett, and so, of course, single-handedly destroys the film. Imagine what a real actress/looker might have done here (Romy Schneider or even Claudia Cardinale), and you'll get some sense of how Ms Rome upends what might have been a good political melodrama.

Alain Delon is far better (nuanced, for a change) than he is in "Le Flic"; Claude Rich impresses, too, as does Jeanne Moreau--but then, when does she not? Writer/director Pierre Granier-Deferre is pretty much a TV-level moviemaker, but this French film is interesting enough to have been a lot better. Tant pis.
