The Scene of the Crime

  • Film

Time Out says

The scene is the rustic vicinity of a small provincial town, the crime what happens to a small boy disaffected by his parents' divorce and by troubled loyalties when an escaped convict commits murder to save him from harm. His mother (Deneuve) promptly falls ass-over-tit for the convict (Stanckzak), his father (Lanoux) huffs around stockbroker-style, and his grandparents (including the imperishable Darrieux, alas) seem to have wandered in from a yokel movie. As vacuously pretentious as Téchiné's earlier Rendez-vous.
