Midsomer Murders re-written as an homage to Michel Audiard
This is the most unlikely and most eccentric police procedural. The mysteries of the murders though, are not the point of the series. For an audience needing the subtitles to follow the dialogue, pensman's review gives a good account. Marleau is a quirky, eccentric police captain, with an irreverent, yet empathetic demeanor. Under the deadpan jokes, she demonstrates an astute understanding of human nature, and that makes her going through suspects and clues enjoyable to watch. A French version of the UK classic series 'Midsomer Murders', if you like: going through the foibles of rural French upper-middle class, one murder at a time, with a few twists and turns on the way.It's good enough to watch on this account only. Et si vous parlez français, il y a un bonus! (And if you speak French, there's a free gift!) Well, you need to speak French and you need to be old enough to catch cultural references that broadly range from the 60's to the 90's. Corinne Masiero as the lead delivers deadpan observations and puns in a style that reminds me strongly of the succulent dialogues of Michel Audiard's body of work as a screen writer, extending from the 1950s to the 1980s. It's been a long time I laughed that much and that often watching a police procedural, not because the sleuthing is ridiculous but because it's delivered brilliantly. As pensman's review notes, Marleau will acknowledge she's no Columbo: if you understand her deadpan delivery, she's arguably funnier.
