When Jean -Pierre Mocky tries,his works resemble Claude Chabrol's.Such is the case of 'the témoin" which is his best film since "l'albatros" (1971).Here there is a true screenplay,no could-not-care-less directing and the results are satisfying.It takes some time to get off,but after about thirty minutes,the movie hits its stride,and it will reamin interesting till the very end.
Noiret killed a Lolita who used to pose(an angel!) for Sordi,a painter in charge of restoring a church.Sordi knows that.Then a good psychological suspense begins ,enhanced by an angelic choir in the church.
There are good lines too:
Superintendent:"this crime can have been committed by anybody!"
Noiret:"Only a sex maniac could do such a thing!"
Superintendent:"That's what I said:anybody could!"
