Que La Bete Meure

Product Information
Based on the future Poet Laureate Cecil Day Lewis s 1938 novel The Beast Must Die , this is one of Claude Chabrol s most acutely observed psychological thrillers, ranking alongside Le Boucher or his Ruth Rendell adaptation A Judgement in Stone. When his beloved son dies in a particularly callous hit-and-run accident, children s author Charles Thenier (Michel Duchaussoy) reacts the way most of us would when the police are unable to help: he resolves to track down the perpetrator himself and exact summary justice, while working out his conflicted thoughts both on the soundtrack and in his diary. But the further his investigation progresses, the more complex the situation becomes, to the point of making him seriously question whether to go through with his crime. But suppose someone else wanted to kill the driver, for a wholly different reason? And what if Thenier s diary was then found by the police?
