Au Coeur du Mensonge (1999)

Au Coeur du Mensonge (1999, FRA) C-113m. ** D: Claude Chabrol. Starring Sandrine Bonnaire, Jacques Gamblin, Antoine de Caunes, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Bernard Verley, Dominique Zardi. Low-key crime drama from master Chabrol. Bonnaire's husband, an introvert arts teacher is suspected by the local community of having raped and killed a young girl (one of his students). Meanwhile, Bonnaire is about to start an affair with a TV celebrity. Drama is well-acted but has very little dramatic or emotional impact. Recommended to Chabrol adepts, others will find it hardly worth the effort. Cowritten by the director. English title: THE COLOR OF LIES.
