Agathe (Isabelle Huppert) is a cold and emotionless ice queen. François (André Dussollier), Agathe's long-term partner, has put up with her all of these years. They are not married, but they live together in a bourgeois Parisian flat with their son, Adrien (Donatien Suner). Despite their fabulous financial and social standing, their household -- which is tyrannically ruled by Agathe -- is a loveless one. Agethe and François' gravest concern is the fact that Adrien did not inherit their intellect and drive, so he is flunking out of school. Unable to test well, Adrien is destined to be sent to a trade school; which essentially means a demotion in social class -- a fate worse than death for someone like Agethe. Since the school will not budge on their testing policies, Agethe and François' sole remaining hope is Adrien's intelligent and cultured best friend Tony (Corentin Devroey). »

★★☆☆☆ Arriving on DVD after a brief run in the capital at the end of last year, Partners in Crime (2012) is the third film in a succession of Agatha Christie adaptations from French director Pascal Thomas. The first in the series to receive a UK release, this is another audacious outing for Bélisaire and Prudence Beresford played by André Dussollier and Catherine Frot. The film is a pleasant comedy caper that loses its way a little towards the climax but remains watchable thanks to the charming leads. The series is based on Christie's short stories about Tommy and Tuppence (now Bélisaire and Prudence) - adventurous spirits that have clearly been in their fair share of scrapes.
