"The Color Of Lies is a suspenseful and unsettling film from Claude Chabrol. When a young girl is foundd and murdered in a slumbering fishing community, the chief of police, Frederique Lesage (the beautiful Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi), identifies René, a washed-up artist (Jacques Gamblin), as the primary suspect. His seemingly devoted wife Viviane (Sandrine Bonnaire) supports him in the face of rumors, while simultaneously conducting an illicit liaison with a celebrity writer. René and Viviane's lives come under close scrutiny, which puts further strain on their volatile relationship. Meanwhile, Frederique becomes better acquainted with the eccentric residents of the town, including a self-important TV journalist (Antoine de Caunes), a small-time crook who fences stolen goods (Pierre Martot), and a curious pair of married shopkeepers (Bulle Ogier and Noel Simsolo)."--Container.

Jealousy, alcohol, deceit, adultery, child molestation, and other assorted acts in a small French town could make it easy for a careless police inspector jump to the wrong suspect. But the new female police inspector is very cautious and wise, which helps her correctly solve the crime(s). Even if one of the suspects judged innocent feels at the end that he should go to the inspector and confess. The audience may want to rewind and review a few scenes if they must comprehend everything completely without a doubt. Just about any movie with Chabrol and Bonnaire is worth viewing.
