wildly playful editing. Chabrol treats the story here as near-camp, but
if I remember it right there's a great cut to an overhead shot, as in
from an airplane, during a car ride. The related "Le Tigre se parfume à
la dynamite <http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0061095/>" isn't as good;
Chabrol's attitude toward his material is indicated there by a scene in
which he acts a cameo, hilariously overplaying his role as a fish
surgeon by acting like a movie director.
Marie-Chantal I would watch again on video or DVD, if anyone knows a
source. But I doubt it's one of the greatest ones: "Le Scandale" (aka
"The Champagne Murders"), now that's a great one.

Chabrol falls into line at last.
No wonder they all disliked Malle so much. HE got to
make the ultimate Dieu la Rochelle film, "le Feu
Follet," and they didn't.
