Absorbing entry in the series
12 June 2005 | by orebaughSee all my reviews

A woman and her daughter bury William Brown in their backyard, and are caught before they can make their getaway. Commissaire Maigret arrives from Paris to investigate. When the hapless Inspector Boutigues lays out his theory of the case and asks Maigret what he thinks, the Commissaire replies: "I don't think anything. I listen...and I look." No fistfights, no gunfights, just Maigret listening and looking and unraveling the connections between the grave-digging Martini women, Mado (owner of the Liberty Bar), the lovely Silvie (her sometime-tenant) and Harry Brown (the late William's son).

Bruno Cremer in the title role has the physical size and screen presence necessary to keep the center of the film on himself. Not widely available, but certainly worth a look if you come across it. Filmed in South Africa, standing in for the 1950's French Riviera.
