Maigret movie scene

Bruno Cremer is Inspector Jules Maigret.

Bruno Cremer once again stars as the beloved Parisian Inspector Maigret in the latest release of feature-length installments of the popular French TV mystery-crime series Maigret, based on the bestselling crime novels of the legendary Georges Simenon.

Set in 1950s Paris and on the French countryside, the series finds the pragmatic, reserved, and refined Commissaire Jules Maigret investigating murders in his singular unhurried manner (wherein he inevitably discovers the truth).  To crack his cases, Maigret peels back the veneer of the seemingly idyllic villages and neighborhoods he sets down in, exposing the criminals lurking in all levels of society.

Presented in French with English subtitles, the unrated Sets 7 and 8, originally broadcast on French television in 2001-2003, contain the following installments:

Maigret: Set 7:
-Maigret and the Wine Merchant
-Maigret and the Minister
-Maigret and the Madman of St. Clothilde
-Maigret Goes to School
-Felicie’s House
-Maigret and the Princess

Maigret: Set 8:
-To Any Lengths
-Maigret’s Failure
-Maigret’s Boyhood Friend
-Maigret has Scruples
-Little Pigs Without a Tail
-Maigret and the Tramp

Each six-DVD set has a running time of approximately nine hours. There are no bonus features included on the DVDs.

The Maigret collections are available directly from MHz Networks.
