"★★★★ – a quiet triumph" – Eye for Film
French cinema titan Gérard Depardieu stars as Jules Maigret in Patrice Leconte’s (The Girl on the Bridge, Ridicule) adaptation of Georges Simenon’s novel Maigret et la Jeune Morte.
Police detective Maigret is handed the case of a young woman found dead in an elegant evening dress in 1950s Paris. He and his men must first identify the woman, before delving into the tragedy of her death.
Depardieu is on superb form as the burly and world-weary police detective.
