Psychedelic relic
4 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Psychedelia was already becoming fast a thing of the past by 1970 ,and however,Marc Simenon ,Georges Simenon's son felt compelled to include one of these wacky sequences in his "le champignon" (the mushroom (sic)) aka as "l'assassin frappe à l'aube" .Featuring his blonde wife Mylène Demongeot and totally wasting a first -class thespian such as Alida Valli -who had rarely been so ridiculous- ,Simenon tried to imitate Clouzot or Chabrol but his work is completely insignificant and is nothing but a jumble where we find a workaholic wife, her husband's war memories and his late mother who treated him bad, plus a neurotic young man,an old hoodlum,and a nymphomaniac painter who used drugs as the rock groups did in those trouble times:just for the sake of art..Ah it takes place in Switzerland and yes they treat themselves to a delicious fondue .
