I’ll find him. 

This was a terribly disappointing and frustrating film.  The surrounding characters, and even Alfred Fichet, le commissaire were all excellent, but the main characters made me so angry.  I did not believe that Christina Delassalle had a heart condition, but merely that she was pathetic and weak.  Her abusive husband, Michel was an unbelievable tyrant with almost not subtlety at times.  Even the most enigmatic character, Nicole Horner got on my nerves at times.  But it shows something that it evoked such a strong reaction from me.  The basic tale was pretty interesting and I just wish it had not been difficult to watch.

 

Apparently this film is also known as Les Diaboliques.
