Fantastic. Why this is not widely know and praised is beyond me. Jean Gabin is fantastic as always. Lino Ventura in a very small role is an added bonus.

Excellent! And enjoyable. True, not p.c. by today's standards, but well-acted, gorgeous and with some psychologically raw and racy scenes. More involving and entertaining than I expected.

You have to press "Play," then go to the lower right hand corner. Second icon in reads "CC"

A good Maigret. Both Jean Gabin (the shrewd inspector) and Jean Desailly (the impotent assassin) are impeccable in their roles.
