Audience Reviews for Poulet au vinaigre (Chicken with Vinegar) (Cop Au Vin)

In a small French village, a trio of unscrupulous property developers attempt to force the local postman and his invalid mother (Stéphane Audran) to sell their home. Missing persons, murder and madness ensue and a police detective is sent to investigate. I can't help thinking I'd have liked this one better if I hadn't seen quite so many of Chabrol's other movies; it's not bad but there's little here I haven't seen before. It begins brilliantly with a great credits sequence and the masterly introduction of the various characters as we follow the postman on his round, but the story does sag in the middle, before Jean Poiret's Inspecteur Lavardin arrives on the scene. The best thing about the movie is the excellent cast.
