Sleuth (1972)

Type :   Production countries :  


Andrew Wyke , a wealthy writer of crime detective fiction, invites to his country manor house the hairdresser whom he knows is having an affair with his wife, Marguerite. Wyke explains to the other man, Milo Tindle , that he is aware of the affair, no longer loves his wife, and suggests that Milo run off with her, so that he may be rid of her. However, he explains that Margurite has grown accustomed to an affluent lifestyle, and suggests that he and Milo stage a mock burglary to steal Margurite's jewelry from the safe at Andrew's house (so that Milo can afford to support Marguerite, and Andrew can collect the insurance money for the "stolen" jewelry). Milo agrees and dresses as a clown, and attempts break into Wyke's house, per their plan, but is ambushed by Andrew who reveals this was a charade, done to set up the circumstances in which Andrew can kill Milo, and be able to claim self-defense. Andrew then shoots Milo.

Later, a Police Inspector arrives to make inquiries concerning missing Milo Tindle. This officer gradually appears to discover clues that link Andrew to the 'murder', but at the moment of arrest the Inspector's real identity, that of Milo Tindle is revealed. Milo then insists on playing another 'game', this time involving 'a real murder'. He says that he has murdered Andrew's own mistress, Teja, and has staged it to make it look as though Andrew is guilty of the crime, going on to explain that he has left various clues in the house which link him to the murder; Milo then provides riddles which Andrew in desperation must solve before the police arrive. However, after this goes on for some time, it is revealed that this is yet another trick played by Milo to get back at Andrew for the attempted murder. The film ends with Milo apparently dying from gunshot wounds, imploring Andrew to tell the police who really are about to arrive ' Tell them it was just a bloody game.'
