Following the success of Poulet au vinaigre, Claude Chabrol and actor Jean Poiret bring back the film’s protagonist, Inspector Lavardin, in this assured sequel. Raoul Mons, a renowned catholicwriter living in a small town in Brittany, is visited by a concerned delegation,which wants to ban a blasphemous play. Mons fulfils his promise to them and the performances do not take place. But when his naked body is found on the beach, it seems as if he has paid a high price for his intervention.
