NEWS: MAIGRET, featuring Gérard Depardieu in the lead role, will grace selected UK cinemas starting from the 1st of September.

Gérard Depardieu, renowned for his roles in "Cyrano de Bergerac" and "Welcome to New York," brings to life one of the most cherished characters from twentieth-century crime fiction in the captivating film "Maigret." This exquisite and masterfully directed crime drama is the creation of BAFTA-winning filmmaker Patrice Leconte, known for works like "L’homme du train" and "La fille sur le pont." The movie draws inspiration from Georges Simenon's internationally best-selling novels.

Set in Paris in 1953, the story begins when the lifeless body of a stunning young woman is found at Place Ventimille, elegantly clad in an evening gown. With no means of identification and no witnesses in sight, Inspector Jules Maigret (Depardieu), a contemplative and world-weary detective, embarks on a mission to reconstruct her tale. As he delves into the mystery, he uncovers intricate details about her past and character that paint a vivid picture of her life.

Dazzler Media presents new crime mystery, Maigret, starring Gérard Depardieu and based on the best-selling books, releasing in selected UK cinemas from 1st September.
