Director Statement

As a cinefil like most of the directors, I have always wanted to entertain in a Hitchcock style. Here is an essai, trying to make a tribute to the master of "mise en scène" for filming murders stories. This one is from a true fact (taken from a short story by Pierre Bellemare) and could be a perfect crime !
