Storyline

One night Nancy Lyon awakes in pain and dies shortly after - poisoned with arsenic. Her family immediately suspects her husband Richard, who left her temporarily the year before because of an affair. Especially Nancy's brother is keen on getting the children away from the suspected murderer. All evidence points against Richard, but in court Richard surprisingly presents proof that his wife had depressions and maybe killed herself - or are these proofs just fake? -- Depicts an authentic case.

Disappointing - a total non-event !
28 August 2005 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

I was expecting much better than this ! This one just plods along with minimal interest for the spectator and the end is a total wash-out. There's not enough spice in this plot to make even a mild curry, it's supposed to be based on a true story, I have no idea as to whether this is true, but whatever the case, there is nothing in the plot to grip the spectator's attention. The guilty party could have been one of several people, nothing enables one to opt for one or other possibility. The final decision is an arbitrary and emotionless one ! When you get to the end of this film, your only comment is " so THAT'S how it ends ! So what ?
