Storyline

After telling Maigret she overheard a plot to kill 'the countess' club singer Arlette is strangled and soon afterwards the body of an elderly, reclusive countess is also discovered. Maigret believes a third person was present when Arlette was killed and is anxious to trace a man called Oscar, whose name Arlette cried out in her sleep. Meanwhile young rent boy Philippe, who shared the countess's drug addiction, n survives an attempt on his life but is too scared to help the police. Maigret finds out that both the dead women once lived at a Nice hotel, where the countess's husband died in odd circumstances and where Oscar also worked. This leads him to track down Oscar and to the closure of his case. Written by don @ minifie-1

Worst one yet...
14 February 2018 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

The first three outings of this re-boot were a treat but this is awful.

The noisy and annoying music can't cover up the feeble screenplay or hide the ridiculous 'geezers' who were written into this story to fill out the running time. The attempts at 'comedy relief' are a spectacular failure, too.

The subtlety of Maigret the policeman is buried here and Atkinson has literally nothing to work with and his plodding through scenes is just uncomfortable to sit through.

The direction borders on being a cartoon, such is the unimaginative and cliched use of camera angles, lighting and perspective. Imagine watching Dick Dastardly & The Anthill Mob brought to life and you'll be close to visualizing what this looks like. It's 'cloak and dagger' without the story to back it up.

In the 1992 episode we were treated with some great character actors (including Minnie Driver) and a fascinating and absorbing 50 minute episode... one of the best of the series, in fact. This version, though, seems to be a desperate attempt to cling to the coattails of the success of the first three movies... rather like Jaws 4 was!

Let's hope they get back to the winning formula of the first films if they do decide to make another one... because this was awful.
