France, WWI. Landru, the father of four Children, contacts Parisian women through newspapers, seduces and eventually kills them in order to feed his little family.
Scripted by Françoise Sagan, Claude Chabrol’s true crime take on one of the most notorious French serial killers is simultaneously chilling and farcical. The mockery of bourgeois respectability is made even more delicious by opulent sets and the casting of glamorous stars such as Danielle Darrieux.
