La Veuve couderc

1971, France, directed by Pierre Granier-Deferre

Granier-Deferre, Simenon, Signoret and Delon combined to generally good effect. The film departs fairly radically from Simenon's source material, but Granier-Deferre shows, again, that he's particularly good on atmosphere and a strong sense of place/time (in this case an almost hermetically-closed community in rural France of the 1930s, with all this implies in terms of mistrust of the stranger, in the form of Delon).
