Les Petits Meurtres D’Agatha Christie — (Best French TV!!)

Les Petits Meurtres D’Agatha Christie

Acorn Media’s latest batch of DVD releases includes something quite novel – Agatha Christie stories, in French! Les Petits Meurtres D’ Agatha Christie includes seven stand-alone mysteries that aired in France between 2009 and 2012. The stories are based on Christie classics such as the ABC murders and Cat Among the Pigeons, but the action is set in 1930s and 1950s France.

Antoine Duléry takes on the role of detective Larosière, a suave ladies man who is described as an “artiste” by none other than the police commissioner. He’s a man who enjoys the finer things in life and he also has a sense of humor. Essentially, he’s a stereotypically French version of the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. The later stories involve the dashing Samuel Labarthe as Commissioner Laurence. Again, to unsophisticated English eyes he seems very much like your run-of-the-mill French fellow.
