Not very Simenonesque
23 March 2008 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

I completely agree with my good friend writer's reign:Albert Prejean was not a good Maigret.He is too young,too handsome and too chic to portray him successfully.

The story itself is not Simenonesque:it is closer to Agatha Christie's whodunit with a dash of Maurice Leblanc's imposture subject thrown in for good measure.We do not find the psychological study of the characters,the social comments ,Simenon's trademarks .

A killer is doing away with people ;these people have certainly got something in common ,but what? a clairvoyant,a blind man,a doctor, a real estate agent.All takes place near the metro station "Picpus" and the eponymous street.Hence the title.

The supporting cast walks away with the honors,particularly Jean Tissier and the always reliable Noel Roquevert...

Like this ?Try these (From Simenon) "Panique "(1946) by Julien Duvivier "Le Voyageur de la Toussaint" (1942) by Louis Dacquin "Maigret Tend Un PIège " (1958) By Jean Delannoy "La Mort de Belle" by Edouard Molinaro (1961) "Le Chat" by Pierre Granier-Deferre (1970)
