an exercise in blackmail
17 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A great little film by the master himself. Annie Girardot is a house keeper who works for 3 different households: Bertrand Blier is a bank teller who has killed his superior & buried him in his backyard, Mireille Darc is a T.V. hostess who had in her past been part of a sex orgy & will soon marry a politician & Sim is a priest by day & an exotic dancer by night. Thru Girardot's gossiping, they soon learn of the other's dirty little secret & start blackmailing each other to the bitter end. A period piece beautifully shot in the Paris of the 1970's & if that was not enough there is even a reproduction of the Mona Lisa with a full on rack.
