Based on Crooked House, a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie first published in the US by Dodd and Mead Company in March 1949, and published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club on 23 May of the same year.
Absurdly hilarious and witty - an under-appreciated French comedy
I don't normally go for the comedy genre, but Crime is Our Business is just irresistibly and chokingly hilarious and at the same time extremely witty.
The acting by Mr and Mrs Beresford ignites the chemistry of the magically perfect pairing up of two top-notch comedians. The movie keeps its story line of murder mystery and suspense and at the same time is fully capable of supplying the audience with unceasing outbursts of laughters and satire.
An unmissable French comedy which is highly unforgettable and sets the bar higher for its counterparts. Welcome on board the insane business of Mr and Mrs Beresford!
