Movie #1225 (#49 this year): Vivement Dimanche (1983, Francois Truffaut)

I looked in the Vancouver library catalogue after reading the Charles Williams book that I found in a used book store about a month ago. They had no Charles Williams books but they did have this movie based on one of his books. But it was on loan. Then after reading the Vin Packer, I read an interview with her. She was asked which authors she would like to see back in print. She named three including Charles Williams. So, I looked for this movie again and this time it was in. I was all settled in to a see a nice "film noir" from Truffaut via Williams. However, this movie is no "noir". Rather it is more a homage to Hitchcock. Many murders but the focus is more on the exploits of the ravishing Fanny Ardant as she goes hither and yon getting into all sorts of tight spots as she accumulates a mountain of clues that she passes on to her boss, Jean-Louis Trintignant. Murder can be fun.
