Coup de Torchon (French: Coup, "a blow," "stroke," "shot", "wipe"; de, "of": Torchon, "towel"; verbatim: "Towel-Wiped", meaning "Wiped Clean"), also known as Clean Slate, is a 1981 French crime film directed by Bertrand Tavernier and adapted from Jim Thompson's 1964 novel "Pop. 1280". The film changes the novel's setting from an American Southern town to a small town in French West Africa. The film had 2,199,309 admissions in France and was the 16th most attended film of the year. It received the Prix Méliès from the French Syndicate of Cinema Critics as the best French film of 1981. Coup de Torchon was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 55th Academy Awards. The New York Times praised the performances and "the meticulousness and conviction on display". Time Out said "this eccentric, darkly comic look at a series of bizarre murders is stylishly well-crafted, and thoroughly entertaining" and "embellished with black wit and an elegant visual sense." TV Guide called it a "stylish, twisted black comedy... with as dead-on an evocation of a torpid, seedy backwater as anyone has achieved on screen."
