    Michel Deville`s sleek drama of eroticism and murder has all the ingredients required for an intriguing thriller: sex, dishonesty, voyeurism, murder and a stunning cast. A rich business man (Michel Picolli) and his young wife Julia (Nicole Garcia) hire David (Christopher Malavoy) to teach guitar to their teenage daughter Vivianne (Anais Jeanneret).

    Julia quickly seduces David and they begin a steamy affair, which unbeknownst to them is being filmed by the next door neighbour (Anemone), whom David has befriended. When an unknown assailant attacks David, he realises that he`s become involved in a web of intrigue that runs deep. An elaborate manipulation plays out, with murder, kidnapping, suicide, a payoff and a surprise pairing. The shadowy characters and the dark sensual backdrops make Death In A French Garden a thrilling and provocative film.
