Inspector Lavardin, played by Jean Poiret, is a dapper, quick-witted man who also can be rather nasty when he comes across people trying to thwart him in his quest for justice. There are two "cinema" release movies here and two so-called "TV" movies. The only difference I can see is their length may be a bit shorter for the TV movies. I have been dying to see these TV movies after seeing the other two Inspector Lavardin films, and they are just as good as the others. All four are directed by Claude Chabrol, who I think has a wonderful way to combine humor, everyday life, and murder, in a single film. I can't understand criticism of him and don't care. I may have watched one of his films I didn't like so much, but the rest have all earned a place in my heart.
At first I thought this set was pricey (around $45 when I bought it), but for two blu rays with two films on each, in superb condition and therefore showing Chabrol's cinematography at their best, I was very happy with this set. Films are in French with English subtitles (optional). Hurry and get this set before it's gone, so you can find the exact time Lavardin wants his eggs cooked (and how many of them). Salut!
