Entertaining murder mystery
24 June 2010 | by (Jakarta) – See all my reviews

Claude Chabrol is known for The French Alfred Hitchcock and I expected for a thriller, but this episode called "Le petit vieux des Batignolles" is humorous and entertaining. Pierre Arditi and Manuel Le Lièvre plays a couple of detective like Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. Méchinet (Arditi), a chief police who likes disguise (but unlike Holmes, he's married) asks Godeuil (Le Lièvre), a young medical student, to help him in an investigation on a murder of a hairdresser in Batignolles, Paris. The prime suspect is the victim's nephew. The victim wrote his murderer's name with his blood and the nephew himself confesses. However, Méchinet believes something is wrong.

If you want to watch how detectives work in light atmosphere, here it is.
