I much enjoy viewing those old episodes which remind me my young years, in the seventies, when I was a kid. In this episode, superintendent Maigret investigates after the murder of an important wine merchant in Paris, and played by Maurice Barrier. A man who also appeared to be a dangerous womanizer and also a contemptuous and contemptible man, who enjoyed humiliating his employees, disgusting with everyone. That opens to many possibilities, concerning the murder cause, doesn't it...
Except this, there is nothing special here, some good acting from time to time, and from supporting actors such as Barrier - who is absolutely terrific as an evil victim - and the murderer's character, but nothing else. Not many surprises, only for the atmosphere and Jean Richard performance, which was his long time trade mark. Not for young audiences, but only old timers like me. Maybe I will comment more MAIGRET épisodes in the future. I'll see.
