very good mystery
8 May 1999 | by (melbourne australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite movies. It's filmed in gorgeous black and white in the gorgeous south of France. I like this film a lot because the twist at the end is so good and so well executed by the film makers, writers and cast. It's a B grade classic.
