Maigret (Expired)

Created by flamboyant author Georges Simenon, pipe-smoking Chief Inspector Maigret is one of this century's classic fictional sleuths. Michael Gambon (Gosford Park, The Singing Detective) gives a superbly understated performance as the sardonic but compassionate Commissaire who, with his unique brand of cool appraisal, never fails to pierce straight to the heart of the crime. Originally part of the PBS Mystery series, Maigret, will delight the drama and mystery fans in your audience.

The suspects are three buyers who had come to attend the sale by auction of a curiously coveted house, and the staff of the inn. Plus a customs officer who works every evening nearby.

Because this time, the crime is foreseen and MAIGRET, already on the scene before the murder, even witnesses the victim'S death... Because he came to Saint-Fiâcre on his own initiative without telling anybody, he will have to act alone, without the help of his assistants, and even without warrants... Because he is accompanied by his wife during this week end and that she will obviously witness the investigation and sometimes intervene. Because the Countess of Saint-Fiâcre, her son, her doctor, her lover, her servants and the villagers, from the priest to the innkeeper, are in MAIGRET'S view totally different from his " usual customers ".. . It is his childhood which suddendly comes to the surface giving him the strangest feeling. Disturbed, Superintendent MAIGRET sometimes turns into the fifteen year old boy he used to be, son of the steward of the estate, in love with the Countess and fascinated by the castle. Thus, it is almost against himself that he will have to fight to discover the truth. After having, like the viewer, suspected almost everybody. Directed by Denys de la Patelliere, 1995, color.

  • Death in a Vegetable Garden
    Sunday, February 3
    1:00 pm on MHz Worldview 9.2
    Very strange, the cadaver of this homeless bum, discovered at dawn in the shed of a vegetable garden in Saint-Mesmin. Equally strange, the two sisters who own the tool shed and the several meters of growing vegetables that surround it. They haven't spoken to each other since long before the war and, in the village, no one has the same version of the cause of their dispute which goes back to 1924. Only the notary of the next village over, an old friend of the family, knows that Antonin is responsible for it all. Thirty years ago, Antonin was engaged to one of the sisters, but married the other, probably for her inheritance. He then disappeared. The sisters divided their house in two, with two entrances and a wall to separate them. But that didn't stop the loud arguments heard several times a week with much swearing involved. Maigret, who was already investigating the murder of a homeless bum in Paris, arrives in Saint-Mesmin to see if the two murders may somehow be connected. And if he has this idea running through his head, it must be true... Thus he debarks to torment the Fouly family, rich farmers with a grandmother as stubborn as a mule. Stubborn, yes, and perhaps a bit senile, but full of memories nonetheless. Then there is Louis, the youngest son, who is not telling everything he knows. Maigret also encounters a group of youngsters that hold a dance every Saturday night in a barn, and many of the villagers who come to look at the body without any recognition of who it might be. No one knows. And the icing on the cake: he must enter the Sirouet sisters' home. They must have the key to the mystery surrounding the death... But getting past their doors is like breaking into a prison in broad daylight... Directed by Edwin Baily, 1999, color. In French with English subtitles.

Ordinary guys aren’t murdered... " The victim, an ordinary accountant, had a life filled with very ordinary things: his apartment, his kids, his wife and his canary, who was said to be his only friend. Who, then, would fire a shotgun from the hotel on the opposite side of the street to kill this simple man? Conducting his investigation with the help of his nephew Paul, Maigret soon realizes that Maurice Tremblet’s life was not as simple as it appeared. Over several hours, Maigret traces Tremblet’s steps all the way to the assassin who still has the smoking gun in his hand: an air gun, used more often at faire grounds than to kill a simple man who has strayed off the beaten path... on a day almost as ordinary as all the others..Directed by Francois Luciani, 2000, color.

The wealthy business attorney, Mr. Parendon, has summoned the commissioner after having received an anonymous letter containing threats of a bloody drama to befall his family in the near future. A rather mundane request for Maigret; an uncommitted crime lacking a suspect and a motive. There are no guilty parties as no murder has been committed... And yet, the atmosphere is heavy with tension in this milieu that is more foreign to him than that of the common or even the white-collar criminal. Here, in the vast living rooms, bedrooms and offices dressed in antiques and original works of art, the occupants’ personalities are steeped in complication: The attorney himself, a brilliant businessman but a husband and father of a rather fragile nature... His wife, Gassin de Baulieu, accustomed to decades of authority and security... Gus and Bambi, their children, struggling under the weight of wealth and etiquette.... The secretary, a certain Miss Vague, whose name is quite aptly chosen!... The attorney’s associates, with hidden ambitions.... and the numerous servants, well trained in the art of silence.... Who is it that puts pen to paper each day to churn out these morbid anonymous letters, threatening the worst with great precision? Who will be the victim? And above all, who will commit the unspeakable foreshadowed assassination in the presence of Commissioner Maigret, who is riddled with guilt by his own inability to prevent the crime. Provoked by the actual murder, Maigret steps up his investigation, bringing this prestigious family down to a normal human level. Pulling out all the stops, the Commissioner finds his marks and arrives at the conclusion that he first suspected but refused to admit, even to himself!! Directed by Denys Granier-Deferre, 2000, color. In French with English subtitles.
