MY NEW PARTNER is a 1984 French comedy film directed by Claude Zidi, starring Philippe Noiret and Thierry Lhermitte. The poster is an original 1984 American one-sheet poster from the distributor Orion Pictures. Noiret plays a streetwise Paris policeman who takes kickbacks from the minor criminals on his beat to allow them to continue. At the start of the film, his partner is busted for corruption and he narrowly escapes. He is assigned an idealistic new partner fresh from police academy. He sets out to corrupt his new partner and, after a slow start, succeeds spectacularly. The original French title is Les Ripoux, which can be translated as "the corrupt ones". The term is verlan, a type of slang where syllables of words are pronounced in reverse order; ri-pou(x) thus inverts pou-rri(s), which means "rotten". (The final x or s, making the word plural, is silent.) The film is also known as Le Cop. It won the Csar Award for Best Film in 1985. Two sequels were later made: Ripoux contre Ripoux (1990) and Ripoux 3 (2003).
