On Maigret's farewell he faces his most dangerous assignment, the American gangsters!!!
31 December 2020 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Sadly the Maigret's trilogy reach in the end "Maigret Voit Rouge" where Jean Gabin as Jules Maigret had a hard task against American gangster at Paris, it somewhat changes the early format on previous ones, as usually the French people were labeled as unpleasant hospitable, here its applied fully perfectly on Maigret's behavior over the foreign gangsters and with Italian-American Pozzi (Vittorio Sanipoli) Manhattan's owner bar, whose he threatens a harsh deportation, equally he scolds the pretty Lily (Françoise Fabian) by she coming from Belgium, alluding their as simply visitors in the so blessing French ground, the plot is the unusual, three American mob gangsters are in Paris to silence a potential French convict who was years at large in USA which bear witness to FBI against a powerful Chicago Mobster, even having a good connection at USA's embassy with a diplomat Harry Mc Donald (Paul Carpenter) who give him puny datum, then Maigret gropes in the dark, however wisely sets a trap with a a redolent cheese to catch the rats at Manhattan's bar at starting point, aside a minor flaws this movie has so many fair qualities and elements that allow hook the viewers, some colorful character as the countryside old Dr. Fezin who speak in an upscale parlance on Kafkaesque language on rare eloquence, Hellenistic philosophy in figurative language, and the unlucky Inspector who was trounced meanwhile looking for his great case, whilst the frantic Jules Maigret explores all his stockpile of abilities to draw some hint which shall reach on the truth, pleasant and even funny mystery of the Maigret's farewell!!

Thanks for reading.
