Critics reviews

Stylishly directed by Jean Delannoy, with canted angles and copious depths of field, the films are uncommonly long for whodunits (Maigret Sets a Trap, pictured, runs 199 minutes)—allowing for privileged rests between the beats, like a lovely kitchen scene where an up-all-night Maigret tells his wife that for various reasons, it may be time to retire. Parisian criminals could only wish.
