I have viewed this several times and this time, after a long interval, I am less pleased about it. In my imagination the inspector was doing the "grilling" much more intensive & much more "cat and mouse play" was involved into it. I love Lino Ventura. 3,5 stars.
A brilliantly intriguing huis clos that wraps everything up in a very economical 86 minutes. Miller never really hit the heights of his early work again but this is a film that deserves to be remembered.
