La tête d’un homme
La nuit du carrefour
Chabrol's final film stars Gérard Depardieu as a police commissioner very much like Inspector Maigret in this "diabolically witty homage to Simenon" (Stephen Holden, NY Times).
Inspector Maigret's first onscreen appearance, made in in collaboration with Simenon. "The only great French detective film" (Jean-Luc Godard).
The famed Inspector Maigret roams crowded Montparnasse cafes and dingy tenements as he hunts for a nihilistic, Dostoevskian killer. Both a classic film noir and a seminal police procedural.
