The Accuser aka L'Imprécateur is a 1977 French film directed by Jean-Louis Bertucelli. After an executive is killed in a mysterious car accident, the French offices of his multinational company based in Paris is inundated with mysteriously threatening be-ribboned anti-capitalist tracts, delivered overnight to everyone's desks. When Americans from the head office get wind of these developments, they institute a search for the perpetrator which leads to mysterious subterranean passages under the company's skyscraper.
