The acting is not great. A little disappointing

That mystery murder is a perfect vehicle for French comic Jean Poiret who is excellent as the facetious unorthodox cop snooping around provincial French bourgeoisie. Chabrol also reunites Brialy and Lafont who starred in his earlier films. A not so remarkable movie made for his old buddies.

Chabrol is repeating himself. It becomes boring.

Very moody and strange with irritatingly pretentious "psychological" music, but we liked it for the inspector, who is a great and complicated character.
