Is there any secret beyond a door? Written by Vincent Merlaud <merlaud@studi.mathematik.hu-berlin.de>

How to plan the perfect murder of your husband!... but -
23 January 1999 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

  • more important than the carefully analysis of a wife/husband relationship


gone sour, with a cunning game between the husband and the wife's lover, is the magnificent depiction of the relationships between a number of characters. The whole bourgeois world that Chabrol so often chastised is here, with unforgettable roles by Romy Schneider, Rod Steiger, and Jean Rochefort. Sum-up: Film's photography is neat; Justice... has got "dirty hands".
