For his first French film in nearly a decade (he'd spent the war years in Hollywood), filmmaker Julien Duvivier chose to adapt Les Fian├žailles de Monsieur Hire, a novel by Georges Simenon. Panique, as Duvivier's version was titled, is a twisted tale of murder, subterfuge and revenge from "Beyond." Middle-aged loner Monsieur Hire (Michel Simon) falls for his neighbor Alice (Viviane Romance) only to be framed for the murder commited by Alice's lover Alfred (Paul Bernard).

Hard to find world movies - Excellent prices! April 9, 2016
Reviewer: Catherine Ousselin from Bellingham, WA United States  
My husband teaches French Culture and Film and needed a title that was not easily found online or in streaming. MovieDetective's site provides an outstanding list of movies from around the world at an excellent price. Delivery time was fast and the quality of the DVD is excellent.

Panic! October 13, 2014
Reviewer: F. Hounder Clay from Reynoldsburg, OH United States  
As with most films he's in, Michel Simon stole the show. One of the greatest actors of the screen. Nice little tragic film noir.
