Of course it will be up to Cigar to decide if this is a neo-noir (visually, as said, it might). I am not persuaded by Depardieu performance. At IMDB somebody said he's too old for the part (he's 73) but that's not the problem which rather lies with his screen persona not rhyming with Maigret's personality. The commissaire is somebody who, behind his professional role hides a deep human understanding for other people: which is not what the characters played by Depardieu in his long career have shown us. Still the movie is worth seeing as (I repeat) it is visually attractive. 7-8/10
