Maigret’s Dead Man (2016)

For the second episode, or second movie, as you prefer, of Maigret, with Atkinson as Chief Inspector Jules Maigret, it wasn’t so strange to see Mr Bean as a serious character. In fact, given he is older, and not grinning with that stupid smile, I can bare him as a serious character. Regarding the movie itself, the plot is not brilliant, but just another Crime story. While there are some nuances, I do not think they are good enough to define this as a great story. Nevertheless, the Parisian ambient of the previous century is very good.
