Introducing Les Petits Meurtes d'Agatha Christie - 70's

Why the 70s? First, because it is an exciting, wild decade. The tone is colourful and jubilant, futuristic and psychedelic. Orange and lime-green are everywhere. The outfits are fantastic: miniskirts with thigh boots and trousers with the obligatory flares. Hippies and bright printed fabrics abound.

The 1970s are also fascinating in terms of new freedoms. But sexual liberation and feminism go hand in hand with a staggering degree of male chauvinism. Virile men are king with their fast cars and cheesy pickup lines, giving the show the perfect opportunity to humorously deride certain kinds of attitude. Les Petits Meurtres was already a feminist series in the 1960s and is even more so in the 1970s!

1972. It all begins when a woman arrives at the police precinct in the northern French city of Lille. She has just been appointed captain in a government experiment, a first in France. Annie Gréco. Gréco chooses to team up with the precinct wild man, Max Beretta. On their first crime scene visit our third lead makes her appearance. Rose Bellecour is a stylish and smart young woman, and a gifted psychologist. In the company of this new trio, we set out for more adventures!

The first episode of Les Petits Meurtres d'Agatha Christie - 70's aired on France2 on 29th January, the second on 5th February. You can watch previews and catch-up with the show on the France2 website.
