Le grand alibi / The Great Alibi (2008) DVD9
Like every weekend senator Henri Pages and his wife entertain guests at their beautiful mansion in a peaceful village near Paris. But this time around, things go awry: Pierre Collier, a psychoanalyst and consummate womanizer, is brutally murdered. Claire, his wife, dazed and confused by his corpse, with a smoking gun still in her hand, seems to be the ideal culprit. She no doubt had reasons for seeking revenge on her fickle husband. But appearances may be misleading. The weapon is not the one used to commit the crime, and each guest becomes a potential suspect. Pierre's mistress Esther, Lea his humiliated former girlfriend, Philippe his rival... they all have a motive. And then there's the senator himself, who is crazy about guns. Captain Grange finds himself confronted by this complex affair - which then becomes even murkier when another murder takes place.
