    Subject

    "In "Innocent Lies", Patrick Dewolf took his inspiration from Agatha Christie and distorted her work by adding (or revealing a hidden side to her novels ?) violent sensuality and venomous eroticism. Then, using a particularly versatile plot, he darkened the characters to suit the historic context of 1938 and so obtain a modern interpretation of the famous writer's works."
