Mr. Devereaux (Gérard Depardieu) is a powerful man. Every day he deals with billions of dollars. The fate of whole nations is in his hands. Devereaux dreams of saving the world, yet cannot save himself. A man driven, a man lost. A man whose sexual hunger knows no bounds. When he is reported to the police by a chamber-maid, his fall from grace begins -- before the eyes of his wife (Jacqueline Bisset) and the world. Welcome to New York is a breakneck, provocative trip into the dark side of the financial aristocracy. Gérard Depardieu plays Devereaux uncompromisingly and with the full power of his unusual physical presence.
