Little Pigs Without A Tail
Marcel, Germaine's husband, has gone missing. And Germaine, a young woman just turned 20, is ready to do anything to find him.......even going as far as to ask Maigret to track him down.
The investigation develops into a game of hide-and-seek between the young woman and the superintendent as to who will find the first clue and who will inform the other about what.....
Maigret isn't always willing to lend himself to the game, but how can he resist the charms of the wilful and high-spirited young Germaine? Directed by Charles Nemes, 2004, color. In French with English subtitles.
