In WWI-era France, aging, unprepossessing grifter Henri Dsir Landru (Charles Denner) hit on an effective manner of supporting the wife, kids, and mistress-by luring a string of lonely-hearts correspondents into affairs, murdering them, and helping himself to their holdings. Claude Chabrol's darkly comic take on the infamous case also stars Danielle Darrieux, Michle Morgan, Hildegard Knef, Stphane Audran, Juliette Mayniel. 119 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: French; Subtitles: French; audio commentary; theatrical trailers. In French with English subtitles.
