Les Petits meurtres d’Agatha Christie (2013)

Back to the funny and well done first episode, Jeux de glaces (aka Mirrors games) by Eric Woreth (2013) – still visible on the web for a few days -, of the season 2 of the television films aired on French television France 2: Les petits meurtres d’Agatha Christie (aka Agatha Christie’s small murders).

 

With a mood of the 50’s in which the director does not hesitate to parody the cinematic codes, the male chauvinist and self-confident Commissioner Laurence (Samuel Labarthe) leads the investigation in an experimental rehabilitation center for madmen. He is portrayed by the excellent Samuel Labarthe who plays like Jean Dujardin’s OSS 117 in Michel Hazanavicius eponymous film.

If the story is not completely successful (the setting of the center and its occupants are not enough present) and if its ends disappoints a little, two supporting roles are are very good too:

  • Alice Avril, the surprising problem page journalist who wants to become an investigative journalist, played by Blandine Bellavoir, an actress with great potential of humour ;
  • Marlène, the naive and superficial blonde secretary of the Commissioner Laurence, magnificently played by the talented Elodie Frenck.
In short, despite its imperfections, Les petits meurtres d’Agatha Christie is an entertainment not to be missed!
