Que la bête meure (1969)

A single father is obsessed with murdering the hit&run driver who killed his only child and poses as a screenwriter to get close to the culprit.

A top-rate crime and revenge drama with a relentless view on bourgeois life and one of cinema's most memorable villains.

Halliwell***: "A complex and engrosiing psycological study that ignores the thriller aspects of the story to concentrate on relationships of love and hatred, with a memorable performance from Yanne as an uncouth villain."

Maltin***1/2: "Outstanding film...This may be the best of many fine Chabrol dramas; Yanne and Cellier are unforgettable, the cinematography (by Jean Rabier) beautiful."
