Singer Jenny Lamour (Suzy Delair) is on the brink of achieving notoriety -- but it's not in the music field. Instead, she's embroiled in a tale of intrigue that involves her jealous husband and accompanist, Maurice (Bernard Blier), murdering a man. In comes Insp. Antoine (Louis Jouvet). Henri-Georges Clouzot directs this 1940s-set, atmospheric tale, which is really a deeply involved character study filmed in Paris.
