"Rien ne va plus" is a highly entertaining thriller by Claude Chabrol. I saw this movie for the first time in the late 90's and I liked it more than today. There are flaws along the story that I did not pay attention when I watched it long time ago. But if the viewer does not think too much, he or she will like the plot points in this film. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Negócios à Parte" ("Business Aside")
