| Fine miniseries
Adapted from the wonderful Maurice Leblanc's novel,it is a very exciting if a bit slow-moving miniseries.Claude Jade,whom Truffaut's lovers know quite well (She was the heroine of the Antoine Doinel Saga ) ,is well cast as Veronique,a young woman who finds back her son and her father on a Breton Island and gets involved in a very strange story,including old ceremonies,druids ,murders ,human sacrifices ....All that a contemporary dud such as "Broceliande" intended to do (and dismally failed) magnificently works here.As Veronique becomes more and more alone,the suspense and the terror rise,and grab the audience till the last episode.

Spoiler:Leblanc's novel was faithfully transferred to the TV screen,with only a big difference:Arsene Lupin,who intervenes only at the end of the book anyway,is completely absent.Some people complained about it at the time.But as "and then there were none" did not need any Hercule Poirot, this Leblanc gem could do without him.
