"In a provincial French apartment block, Monsieur Hire endures a solitary life of dulling work as a tailor and vitriolic scorn from his neighbors. Hire's only solace is an occasional night out bowling and the voyeuristic admiration of his neighbor. ... When police discover the nude body of another young woman in a nearby vacant lot, Hire becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation."--Container.

This 1989 film is one of the best films I have seen in the last 12 months. It is now on my list of top ten film noirs that I have ever seen. The depth of desire of one human being for another suggests that this depth of desire is one of the facets that was not allowed in “Double Indemnity” because of the Hays Code. The shocking thing is that I saw it in a theatre in ’89 and in 2014 I remembered it as being excellent, but did not remember any of the details at all. This was a rare gift, being able to experience a top film two times, each time experiencing it as the pieces of the puzzle come together.
