Storyline

Molinat is assigned to the case of a man found with a bullet in his ear on the shore of a little Atlantic coast resort he knows well. Indeed, he used to live there before his wife disappeared at sea, never to be found again. As the ocean rejects a new corpse everyday, the mystery thickens and the list of potential suspects grows longer. This slows Molinat's progress as much as the cumbersome Leroyer, sent in to spy on him and hopefully impede his progress. The tension mounts and the ring involving the three young ladies in the grey mansion, the village idiot and the real estate agent starts spinning out of control. Written by Jaber <_Jaber_@yahoo.com>

No drowning allowed
6 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

The detective story is dull,inconsistent and the characters (with the exception of Laura Betti's who is given the opportunity to show her motherly love) are pure cardboard.There are lesbian undertones but they are not really exploited.Apart from this ,there is the peeping tom ,secretly imploring the sunbathing lady to turn over,the loony old woman (the admirable Suzanne Flon,wasted one more time) picking up shells on the beach and waiting for the return of her drowned child .This waiting and the final remark about the other cop (Guy Marchand) are the only good ideas of a poor screenplay.

Pierre Granier-Deferre seems ill-at-ease and he tries to imitate Jean -Pierre Mocky (the dead bodies are piled up but nobody seems to care that much).He was primarily a storyteller who needed strong scripts ("Une Etrange Affaire " "Le Chat" ).The two dissimilar cops characters are commonplace .Guy Marchand shows more subtlety than his co-star Philippe Noiret.
