Storyline

In Cantagrel, Urbain Coindet, a farmer and town councilor in his forties, finds his wife hanging from a beam in the barn. Aurélie Coindet has committed suicide but but not everybody is convinced. The village is soon divided in two conflicting sides, the Republicans who support Urbain and the clericals accusing him of murder, which particularly suits Frédéric, a tobacco smuggler who hates the farmer.Urbain's case becomes even worse as he develops a tender feeling for Jeanne, a sweet young lady who happens to be Frédéric's sister...

not my favorite Verneuil film by any means
14 May 2008 | by (illinois) – See all my reviews

I saw a scratchy VCR copy of this the other night. I'd heard good things about it. The black and white Provencal images are nice, but unfortunately that's about all I enjoyed. One more time Fernandel leading a draft horse....one time too many for that image as far as I'm concerned. The "slice of life" across the little town was nice, and a prelude to what I think was done better in Boulanger de Valorgue. What I really disliked about this film was its broad cruelty. Fernandel expresses shock when he comes home to find his wife hanging from a rafter, but that's it. No remorse, no emotion of any kind. Even for someone he doesn't love I would have expected something more. I don't know whether this is a reflection on the director or Fernandel's acting ability, but it gave the whole story a kind of jarring unreality. There was also a lot of needless cruelty involving the facture - a butt of jokes in many French films - but the first time I've seen one shot. Finally, the film ties up a lot of the plot's messiness at the end in a poor way, in order to generate a happy fade-out. This film was hard enough to find. It's a pity that it's even harder to recommend for viewing.
