Simenon mystery made in occupied France in 1943
9 February 2001 | by WilburrabbitSee all my reviews

Rather ordinary mystery enhanced by the unavoidable awareness that this movie was made under wartime circumstances. Basically, a young man becomes the unexpected heir to a large fortune, and runs up against the "syndicate" of corrupt townsfolk. The murderer is eventually discovered, and the man finds true love. Interesting performance by Jean Desailly, who is not well known in the US.
