Storyline

Molinat is assigned to the case of a man found with a bullet in his ear on the shore of a little Atlantic coast resort he knows well. Indeed, he used to live there before his wife disappeared at sea, never to be found again. As the ocean rejects a new corpse everyday, the mystery thickens and the list of potential suspects grows longer. This slows Molinat's progress as much as the cumbersome Leroyer, sent in to spy on him and hopefully impede his progress. The tension mounts and the ring involving the three young ladies in the grey mansion, the village idiot and the real estate agent starts spinning out of control. Written by Jaber <_Jaber_@yahoo.com>

WIDOW'S WALK (Pierre Granier-Deferre, 1987) **1/2
2 December 2006 | by Bunuel1976See all my reviews

Although I had originally intended to tape something else entirely off the TV i.e. the nunspoitation flick, LA BADESSA DI CASTRO (1974), this latter-day French thriller served as a welcome tribute to the passing of its amiable leading man Philippe Noiret. He plays a seemingly passive Police Inspector who finds himself investigating (with his much more fastidious partner Guy Marchand in tow) a series of baffling murders in a quiet seaside town. The distinguished cast - Stefania Sandrelli, Laura Betti, Andrea Ferreol, Suzanne Flon - ensures that there is never a lack of possible suspects and red herrings, although it is the frequently naked younger generation of starlets - particularly Elisabeth Bourgine, Anne Roussel and Marie Trintignant - who leave the greater impression. The eventual culprits are a genuine surprise and their tragic fate prefigures THELMA AND LOUISE (1991) by several years.
