The legendary Gérard Depardieu brings to remarkable life one of the most beloved characters from 20th century crime fiction in MAIGRET, the exquisite, masterfully-directed new crime drama from multi award-winning writer/director Patrice Leconte (Monsieur Hire, Ridicule, The Girl On The Bridge), based on Georges Simenon’s internationally best-selling novels.

Paris, 1953. The body of a beautiful young woman is discovered at Place Ventimille, dressed in an elegant evening gown. There is nothing to identify her, and no witnesses. Pensive and world-weary Inspector Jules Maigret (Depardieu) endeavours to piece together her story, and in doing so uncovers details about her past and character. In his enquiries, he encounters Betty (Jade Labeste), a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to the victim, but who also reminds him of one even closer to his own life.

Simenon (and Leconte’s) formidable protagonist - a French counterpart to Agatha Christie’s Poirot and P.D. James’ Dalgliesh - has been brought to the screen before, but Depardieu leaves an indelible stamp on the character, bringing tenderness and dignity to a man prepared to listen before he speaks, and to stand up for those without a voice.

"Incredibly moving and beautiful. Depardieu finds here by far his best role." Le Figaro
