Maigret Does It Again
orebaugh17 July 2005
A vagabond is found dead in a garden shed near Dole, carrying the same weapon that killed another vagabond in Paris a few weeks earlier. No one will admit to knowing the dead man, but Commissaire Maigret suspects differently. He must probe the dysfunctional Fouly family, a group of partying young people, and two sisters who haven't spoken (except in insults) in 30 years. There are old secrets to be unearthed.

This is a quiet, low-key story that comes up short of compelling, though its ending is quite strong. Bruno Cremer is good in the title role (and he should be, considering how many times he's played it). Renee Le Calm provides comic relief as the sometimes-deaf Fouly grandmother. Genevieve Fontanel (younger sister Fonsine) worked with Francois Truffaut in L'Homme Qui Aimait Les Femmes (The Man Who Loved Women). Filmed in the Czech Republic.
