Directed by Pierre Granier-Deferre • 1971 • France
Starring Simone Signoret, Alain Delon
Based on a novel by master crime writer Georges Simenon, this quietly gripping drama centers on the unexpected relationship that develops between a hard-bitten country widow (Simone Signoret) and a mysterious outlaw (Alain Delon) as they become bound together in a struggle against her brutish in-laws. Set against the rising tide of fascism in 1930s France, THE WIDOW COUDERC is a superb showcase for the chemistry between French cinema icons Delon and Signoret, with the latter delivering one of the finest of her formidable late-career performances.
