A journalist and detective novelist (Robin Renucci) is hired to ghostwrite the memoirs of a famous TV-game-show host (Philippe Noiret) in a Hitchcockian thriller and guessing game devised by Claude Chabrol, working with coscreenwriter Odile Barski. This isn’t up to the level of Chabrol’s slightly earlier Poulet au vinaigre, but Chabrol fans should still beat a path to it. With Bernadette Lafont (1986). (JR)
