Mathieu Amalric in 'Love Is The Perfect Crime'

Acclaimed French actor Mathieu Amalric tops the bill of this week’s big French movie release: "Love Is The Perfect Crime". It’s billed as a "romantic thriller" with comedy thrown in too. Catherine Nicholson and France 24 film critic Lisa Nesselson ask what that means, and whether comparisons to Hitchcock and David Lynch stand up.

Meanwhile, psychological chills are on offer in "A Pact" – the tale of two middle-aged men for whom a teenage pact over a girl comes back to haunt them.

We’re also exploring France's efforts to sell its movies abroad as film sales agency Unifrance invites the world to Paris – and a month-long film festival begins that anyone with an internet connection and a couple of euros can join in with.
