Irreverent, nasty, politically incorrect, often vulgar and sometimes even rude, Rock and Belles Oreilles' inexhaustible and irresistible humour marked Quebec society in the 1980s and 1990s. Nothing has escaped this cultural phenomenon: radio, song, personalities, major events and social phenomena have fuelled this delirious, biting and funny humour because it is more true than nature. Reflecting a generation, RBO has clearly contributed to giving humour its nobility within Quebec culture. 2ndt of 5 dvd of the box set: ROCK ET BELLES OREILLES: THE COFFRET ET THE BONUS.

When the mysterious man recovers, he can't remember a thing...he does not know his name, he does not know where his flashback memories come from, and he does not know why the access code for an anonymous Swiss bank account is implanted in his thigh. As he seeks his own identity, things quickly become dangerous. There are attempts to kill him, he is well known in first class hotels across Europe, and worst of all, there are strange similarities between his memories and reported actions of the notorious terrorist, Carlos the Jackal.
