Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Pas De Pitie Pour Les Femmes is a tricky French-filmed murder mystery. It is so tricky, in fact, that it defied the efforts by contemporary reviewers to synopsize the plot! Most observers agreed on this much: At stake in the proceedings is a vast inheritance, fought over by a group of remarkably unsympathetic stock characters. Michel Auclair and Simone Renant head the stellar cast. Director Christian Stengel seemed more interested in his villainous characters than in simply telling the story at hand.
