Man in a Hurry (L'Homme pressé) is a French drama by Édouard Molinaro. It's based on a 1941 novel by Paul Morand, but they moved it to the current era. Alain Delon plays an art collector who's always in a hurry. This hectic lifestyle demands a toll from his health. His two sisters are the opposite; they always take their time. A funny scene is when he has a row with a city councillor after digging up a Roman temple. In a fury he jumps on the excavator and reburies the ancient building.
