Play the game of truth at your own risk.
5 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Another Robert Hossein little gem that should be restored to favor.It might be ,relatively speaking,his discreet charm of the bourgeoisie. A dozen of elegant people are gathered in a writer's desirable mansion .In the grand tradition of Agatha Christie ,they all have got something to hide.They begin a cruel game of truth ,a game where you're not supposed to tell lies.As the questions become more and more intimate and precise,the tempers rise ,while outside the storm is raging.Enter a hateful person (played by Paul Meurisse ,the nasty headmaster in "les diaboliques") who seems to know a lot about them.He's murdered.Whodunit?

Hossein creates a stifling atmosphere and although the characters do not move outside of the apartment,he avoids filmed stage production traps.Good cast including Jean-Louis Trintignant ,Jean Servais and Robert Hossein himself.Cast and credits come at the end only ,like in many films of today."Continuously" best describes its construction.
