This comes close to the stark stories of Simenon with his undercurrents of class antagonism and the degeneration of the French bourgeoisie. The scenery of fishing villages and back alleys of Paris are poetic. Maigret is played brilliantly by Cremer who pursues the criminal but saves his greatest contempt for the whining rich and their sycophants. It's so unlike more contemporary crime series where a ridiculous emphasis is placed on the inner emotional conflicts of the flawed detective protagonists and their even more ridiculous sex lives - shows where the empty spaces are crammed with gratuitous violence and streams of vacuous profanity.. Maigret maintains a quiet corner of normalcy in his relations with his colleagues, his wife and friends - he is always ready to savor a good meal even with the yet uncovered murderer and savor the domesticity of criminals. This is more literature than the usual television fare of simplistic stereotypes and exhibtionism. Simenon, through Maigret, is as mysogynistic as most detectives in literature - but his greatest contempt is saved for the putrid and downwardly mobile rich, the upwardly mobile grasping industrial and provincial thugs and the bootlicking officials and politicians. Good stuff.

Very Enjoyable
Verified purchase
As always, excellent editing and great character development. Refreshingly slow-paced compared to American films, which for me is a relief. No car chases or CGI! Gives the viewer credit for having some intelligence. Reading the subtitles is intrusive at first, but after about three minutes, you forget you are reading and become immersed in the plot.

Can't believe noone to date has reviewed this wonderful old series yet! I am simply blown away. Very French, very charming, acting is simply splendid and the English subtitles very legible. I so much prefer this to the English "Maigret", likewise available on Amazon.... NO COMPARISON! As always, thank you Amazon!

Overrated. Recommend Michael Gambon's take on Maigret, much more entertaining.

Slow Escargot
Verified purchase
It is a slow, very French film noir that plods along at a snail's pace and at some point before the end becomes totally predictable. The characters are well defined and interesting and it is an insightful look into the French burlesque scene of the times. Its kind of a dark dreary background set. The problem is you know he will get his man long before he does. Very little sNaP-cRAckKe-Pop if that is your fave detective genre.
