After trying to commit suicide, the widow Julie Kohler (Jeanne Moreau) pretends to her mother that she will leave her town. Actually she stays, chases and assassinates the five men that accidentally killed her beloved husband in the stairs of the church immediately after their wedding ceremony.Written by

During the interrogation of Julie by the police, victims are shown on a screen from a slide projector. One of the portrait slides are shown inserted in upright position in the slide projector which would result in an inverted screen picture. But the screen picture is shown in correct upright position.

Permit me to make an impossible wish?
Because I'm a rather pessimist.
I've heard it said: "There are no optimists or pessimists. There are only happy idiots or unhappy ones".
Yes, well. I'm an unhappy idiot then.

Truffaut doing Hitchcock is pure delight. I would even say I prefer it to some Hitchcock films because Truffaut has better views on certain issues and it showed here. The film is absolutely satisfying and quite creative with the varying... methods, shall we say, by the protagonist. It's incredible how rare a film involving this story line could end this great, and I love Truffaut for indulging the audience and giving us what we want (though I can only speak for me of course).
