Innocents With Dirty Hands - 1975 - 6/10
AKA - Les Innocents Aux Mains Sales

This feels like two filmed tacked together.
The first half, an intense thriller, finds a young wife and her lover plotting to murder the older husband.
A tale as old as dirt, and yet, there is a problem with the body, and the timeline.
This is absorbing, in the very best Hitchcock tradition.
The second half is, regrettably, dominated by endless talking, and it felt very stagebound.
I realize many love this one, but I suspect they love the first half.
