New Wave director Claude Chabrol employs an aloof perspective in this tale of murder and a dysfunctional family. The paterfamilias Henri Marcoux (Jacques Dacqmine) is having a fling with the neighbor woman Leda (Antonella Lualdi). When she turns up murdered, police suspect the milkman, a friend of the Marcoux's sultry maid Julie.

His wife Therese (Madeleine Robinson) is a regular harridan; is she guilty?… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Chabrol was a hedonist who made no bones about how much he relished food and sex, usually in that order."
‑ Dan Callahan, Reverse Shot
"Claude Chabrol's dissection of the living-dead bourgeoisie"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"An early sample of a French New Wave "whodunit" from Claude Chabrol."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
