The problem with this one is that is based on one of the best crime novels ever written. So you had to give it to a great director. It wasn't. Then the protagonist: not an actor. In fact he went behind the camera. The OST: terrible. Moreau: she was young her only asset: as pretty as Glenda Jackson.  A lot of known minor faces of years to come: Lefebvre, Maurier, Musson (!). I give it 7/10 because the plot is so good it can't but save the movie, but I'd rather read again the novel than watch this again.

Run-of-the-mill. The sets, on the contrary, are very much like I imagined them while reading the novel. Though they are not memorable.
