From Claude Chabrol, the legendary director of Les Bonnes Femmes, Line of Demarcation, Les Biches, Le Boucher and L’Enfer, comes this suspenseful drama starring the great Stéphane Audran (The Twist, Babette’s Feast), Jacques Charrier (The Seven Deadly Sins, The Oldest Profession) and Walther Reyer (Tiger of Bengal, Journey to the Lost City). Albin Mercier (Charrier), a failed and disillusioned journalist, is sent to Germany to cover an event. There, he meets a successful writer (Reyer) who’s happily married to a Frenchwoman named Hélène (Audran). Bitterly jealous, yet besotted with the beautiful Hélène, he decides to ruin the couple’s lives. This cunning critique of the bourgeoisie was beautifully shot by the great Jean Rabier (Purple Noon, Elevator to the Gallows).
