Thriller "Yves Montand stars as a tough middle-aged cop who falls for a young and mysterious photographer (played by Stefania Sandrelli) without realising she is the mistress of his unstable boss (François Perier). When she’s murdered the detective is assigned to the case - only to discover most of the clues point to him. Eventually he manages to extricate himself and implicate the boss whose wife is the crippled Simone Signoret. The tightly-woven script is adorned with psychological undertones and calls in all the conventions of the traditional detective story but adds new twists by allowing the cops use gangster-inspired methods against their adversaries."
