This "Maigret", starring Michael Gambon as the indefatigable commissaire (here reranked into a Chief Inspector), at first glance, slots quite nicely among this set were it not for one aspect, the budget allotted to the first series was clearly far smaller than the ones given to any of the other, more distinguished series.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Women viewers will be surprised at seeing how much Maigret respects women involved in the stories, no matter what is their social place in life. I don't think we watched them in French with English subtitles like we did with other movies, but he's a French detective and there are a lot of French words and sites that are helpful to the students. Cremer's Maigret is taciturn and intense, preferring to wait silently while people reveal themselves, riding his men hard at times, especially the often incompetent officers he encounters outside of Paris; and his Paris (Prague) is always gray or pitch black, dark wet streets, his pipe glowing.

Maigret TV Series 1991–2005: starring Bruno Cremer, as the most widely known Maigret, in 54 episodes over 14 years.

I think the Atkinson version was just awful, though it gets points for possibly bringing new readers to a terrific author. Essentially, the BBC has transformed Maigret into a hard-boiled British detective with none of the subtlety of Georges Simenon's French detective. What makes the show hilarious is that he is the only one in each series who has any wisdom whatsoever. Uncovering the criminal is almost an aside to stories of envy, greed, fraud, petty criminality and the hatreds and resentments in the everyday lives of ordinary people.

The DVD set includes two discs with two episodes and bonus material on each; the episodes are: Maigret Sets a Trap Disc 1-1; Maigret’s Dead Man Disc 1-2; Night at the Crossroads Disc 2-1; and, Maigret in Montmartre Disc 2-2.

People are critical of this saying it is a British version of a French tale,fair comment but it is a well written and well cast and watching makes me want to win the lottery and move to Paris. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections—they may also appear in recommendations and other places. Sporting his pipe that seems a nod to Sherlock Holmes, the pragmatic and refined Maigret investigates murders in his singular unhurried manner and inevitably discovers the truth.Better to obtain and watch the Bruno Cremer version, even though it requires you know French or read subtitles. I like to check all my purchases when they arrive as it might be a while before I get to watch them in full. I like the recent,Rowan Atkinson version of Maigret but this version is bigger budget and a better view of Maigret and his team in a more sinful Paris. He is well supported by Jack Galloway and James Larkin as Janvier and LaPointe, respectively, with Geoffrey Hutchings giving what is, in my mind, the definitive portrayal of the faithful Sgt.
