As he prepares to marry his daughter, Favraux, a rich banker, receives a letter from a man named Judex telling him to return the money he stole from the families his financial malpractices have ruined. Favraux hires a private detective to find the origin of this mysterious letter. By directing a remake of Louis Feuillade's classic, Franju pays a vibrant tribute to the serials that rocked his childhood and fed his imagination as a film buff. It's all there: cascading twists and turns, traps and pitfalls, false leads and double identities.
