Un Meurtre Est un Meurtre Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this French suspense drama, Paul ([[Performer~P8391~Jean-Claude Brialy~jeanclaudebrialy]]) is a decent man in an ugly situation. His wife ([[Performer~P2809~Stephane Audran~stéphaneaudran]]), who was crippled in their second year of marriage, has become a bitter and unpleasant virago. Though he keeps company with a lovely mistress ([[Performer~P67040~Catherine Spaak~catherinespaak]]), the wife is still a considerable burden. When she dies in an automobile accident, he is relieved. That relief is short-lived, however, because his sister-in-law ([[Performer~P2809~Stephane Audran~stéphaneaudran]], again) comes to live with him immediately. For reasons of her own, she re-creates his wife's shrewish persona and even uses her wheelchair. At the same time, someone tries to blackmail him by suggesting that he killed his wife. Naturally, when the blackmailer ([[Performer~P94922~Robert Hossein~roberthossein]]) is found dead, he is the chief suspect. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
