(OK) Clouzot is amused with such characters that antagonize, fails, betrays, act pompous and stupidly, and has strokes of illumination (as delicious Susy Delair) in a midlle of a confusing crime thriller

Dapper Inspector Vorobechik ('Wens' for short) is assigned the case of a serial killer who leaves a calling card on his victims; Monsieur Durand. Wens' mistress, struggling actress Mila Malou, determines to get publicity for herself by helping him. Learning that Durand is one of the eccentric tenants of a boarding house at No. 21 Avenue Junot, Wens takes a room in the guise of a Protestant minister; only to be followed by Mila who hardly seems like a minister's wife! Suspects are arrested, but while each is in jail, there's another murder...

"15.8. Henri-Georges Clouzot'n jämäpaska viihdytti minua paljon odottamaani enemmän. Murhamysteeriparodia tarjoilee aikansa troopit hauskaan, mutta ei liian alleviivaavaan sävyyn, jolloin huumoripuoli ei tunnu pakotetulta. Suzy Delairin esittämä Mila Malou on aivan mielettömän herttainen hupakko, ja tarinan loppuratkaisukin typeryydessään hyvällä tavalla koominen. Itse asiassa hieman ilmiselvintä huumoria karsimalla ja täyden nobodyn ohjaamana elokuva tuntuisi melkeinpä kalkkunalt"
