The FBI (The French boys investigate)
3 July 2009 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

In the grand tradition of Paul Very (writer) and Christian-Jaque (director),"Les Gosses Mènent L'Enquête" (=the kids investigate)takes place in a boarding school where a supervisor hangs himself one night;but is it really a suicide?It's all the more intriguing since the man was rather rich and that soon after a young pupil commits suicide the same way.

One of the students ,Dominique (played by ,as it is often the case in this kind of movie ,an actor who is obviously too old for the part (23 )) tries to find the clue to the puzzle ;he is in love with the headmaster's daughter ,a sick girl ,who fears her father might be an assassin.

The screenplay is not particularly memorable ,but acting and directing are OK ,particularly the scenes in the dark at night when everybody's supposed to be asleep and when silhouettes pace dangerous corridors .
