Among the people Millar investigates are the gangster's brother, his sister-in-law, and their teenage daughter. A judge may also offer insight into the case, as well as Millar's own past.Written by
Hugo Santiago made an interesting if minor little movie in the late seventies called "écoute voir" where Catherine Deneuve played a private eye dressed like Marlowe.
Here we go again.Another long-haired private eye,with a long gray beard, investigates a shady rich person's death.This is the beginning of an interminable story,extremely boring,with an exasperating voice-over-you might understand why at the end-.A lotta nudities.Cat Stevens's song "Lady D'Arbanville" whose connection with the movie escapes me.And Santiago's fixation about Jules Verne: (which was already present in "écoute voir" and its mysterious ray)the Nemo family.
If you can watch it till its end,congratulations!
