Jill's Deadly Trap
At first I decided that I would be bored with this 'mystery thriller' story because nothing wild was happening . . . . ahh, but then I remembered that in the 1970's many movies, particularly European movies like this one from France, approached a story much differently than the hurry-scurry 90 mile an hour Americans. This story rolls along at a leisurely pace, promising great mystery and danger, but delivering a normal . . . well, as normal as most families ever get . . . story about an American family living in Paris. True, our first hint of danger comes in the first minute of the story - Philippe meets a mysterious man who asks him to do one more job for 'them' and it will be the last job that they ask him to do . . . Philippe remarks that they will never let him go, and he will not do any more assignments for 'them.' Then we meet Philippe's wife Jill, played by Faye Dunaway, and meet their two children, Cathy and Patrick . . . and our story drifts along like a luxurious lazy afternoon soap opera with a tantalizing bit of mystery popping out every so often. I particularly was amused when girlfriend Cynthia brought two bottles of domestic champagne as her contribution to dinner . . . domestic champagne is excellent if you are in Paris! It seems that Jill has a memory problem . . . She forgets events that have supposedly happened the day before . . . and just about the time that we think she is totally loony her psychiatrist reminds her that every time she has a memory lapse her best girlfriend Cynthia is involved . . . strange . . . we must remember that. Just as we are getting totally involved in the story about Jill and her kids and her girlfriend Cynthia, it happens. Mysterious Miss Hansen is following Jill and the kids, and then the kids disappear, and Jill is questioned . . . . with her erratic behavior and memory problems she is suspected of doing away with her kids, or at the least abandoning them to the streets of Paris. But alas, the children have been kidnapped, and we discover that Jill is caught in a very deadly trap, and this thriller is about to intensify for Jill! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
