No consensus yet.
There's a strange, dreamy aloofness about this film that makes it difficult to invest in emotionally, but it's a phenomenally dry comedy about a murderer's quest for atonement, in the face of bourgeois indifference to his crime. When a sadomasochistic game goes too far, Charles, a married man, strangles his lover, the wife of his best friend, and then does battle with his guilty conscience. Though it begins and ends brilliantly, the story does sag in the middle, before Charles' guilt gathers self-destructive momentum, and it suffers from a lack of suspense, attributable to the other characters' apathy toward the crime. "Juste Avante la Nuit" agreeably reunites Michel Bouquet and Stéphane Audran, a couple of years after Chabrol's superb "La Femme Infidèle"; Bouquet is marvellous but Audran isn't really given enough to do this time around, unfortunately. Flawed but fascinating.
