Movie Info

In this French New Wave crime drama, set in a suburb of Paris, a murderous adman is talked out of telling the police that he strangled his mistress by his wife. The guilt-ridden fellow then tells his best friend, his late mistress' husband. He too calmly suggests silence even after the ad man tells him that the relationship involved sadomasochism and the strangulation came during a passionate moment. Although the confessions bring him temporary comfort, his guilt is such that eventually he quietly takes an overdose of sleeping medicine. His wife dutifully prepared the deadly draught for him.
