Storyline

Bernard Sommet has killed his wife and her lover and he declares that was a crime of passion. Sylvie Foucot, his court-appointed attorney, not only believes him but falls in love with him. But the examinating magistrate is not convinced. For his part, he leans towards premeditation. Whether Sommet premeditated his act or acted out of anger and jealousy will be up to the court to decide. Written by Guy Bellinger

the last movie directed by Berthomieu is a Film Noir
19 September 2017 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Film noir has always been a specialty in french cinema. And it is really strange that Berthomieu, well known for his comedies, directed this film noir, I don't remember any crime movie in his filmography. Maybe 1959 was a peak in french film noir, so Berthomieu directed and adapted this Dard novel. "Préméditation" isn't a masterpiece but the casting is strong and the mystery remains complete till the end. Some might say it lacks tension and rhythm but the noir destiny is written and that's the best of it.
