Paris, the mid-1960s: A wave of prostitute murders shocks the public - until Hélène Picard, herself a prostitute, is caught pretty much red-handed with one of her victims. She's tried, sentenced to death, and ultimately executed. But once she's dead, the murder-spree starts anew, and again all the victims are prostitutes and are last seen with a yet-unidentified woman.

In a seemingly unexpected story, Louis Guildeau (Claude Merlin), the very man who executed Hélène, lures Solange Lebas (Solange Pradel), the very policewoman who investigates the new prostitute murder spree, to his apartment. She sees through his pretense pretty much right away, but finds him likeable, charming even, so it's not long before they become a couple. Everything works out fine for a while, until she wants to go on a holiday trip but misses the train - and upon returning to their apartment, she catches him dressing up as a woman, a woman that fits the description of the prostitute killer remarkably well ...


Now while this film has been finished in 1968, it didn't find distrubution anywhere until 2014, when it was released in its native France, and is ultimately released in the US only in 2023 - and that's a bloody shame if there ever was one as A Woman Kills is nothing short of a hidden gem, a mix of psychological thriller, police procedural, true-crime mockumentary and even a bit of love story thrown in, with a pretty action packed finale, all done nouvelle vague-style, with avantgarde camerawork and editing and even some political undercurrents. And what's fascinating is that the film still feels fresh 55 years after its creation because it perfectly blends the unusual with the entertaining, doesn't follow a formula or try to stay within genre boundaries, and comes across much less pretentious than many other nouvelle vague movies of the era. In short, a great rediscovery that's not to be missed!
