Tomas Milian kills and kidnaps while framing Marlene Jobert
26 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Folle a tuer" is a proficient and completely engaging thriller in an older style where the suspense is natural and built into the situations, where there are no pyrotechnics or concocted car chases, and where psychology and person-to-person tensions play a large role.

The story is not too complex but just layered enough to be interesting.

The movie has charm, despite the threats and even deaths that occur in it. No doubt that Jobert contributes mightily to it, but the good script helps a great deal.

Marlene Jobert, the protagonist, is recently released from an institution that has rehabilitated her. She's hired by rich industrialist Michael Lonsdale to be full time governess for his nephew.

Milian and two associates kidnap Jobert and the nephew. They frame her.

This is not an atypical wrong person setup, and it is handled efficiently and with no letup in momentum.

This movie is easy to recommend.
