Psychological approaching between the long corridor & closed door !!!
Fine piece of a psychological approaching over the veteran police Inspector Gallien (Lino Ventura) and the suspect Jerome Martinaud (Michael Serrault) of two murders and rapes of two young girls, under pleasure by the skilled Gallien who impose an strategic guideline to extract a confession, in other hand the smart Jerome an old man with a failed marriage has to answer the several double meaning questions, the cold and stiffing atmosphere on the room at the police precinct is extremely grueling for both and more to the viewers neither, even having break a couple times in between when it's back starts all over again, until a key witness appears, Jerome's wife, Chantal Martinaud (Romy Schneider, how was beauty yet) the accused refuses meeting her, then Gallien has a private conversation on a separate room, after a long talk at last the convinced Inspector has a card hidden on his sleeve, even never hearing nothing over the Director Claude Miller, he made a fabulous and complex picture, when you suppose that all are settled, then goes a crowning surprise, according my feelings both Lino Ventura and Jean Gabin were the greatest French actors of all times and this picture states that, also Serrault deserves my greetings for such performance!!!!
