RARA-AVIS: Simenon's "Red Lights"

I saw the film "Red Lights", from the out of print novel by Simenon. It was excellent: about manhood, marriage, the culture of the automobile
(as weapon, as well as method of travel), self-image, what the French describe as ennui or nausea, and about what family is. The background music is from DeBussy's "Clouds." The first time we hear the music is as background of a French superhighway. I believe many fine films have been made from Simenon's novels over the years, maybe more than any other crime writer except Chandler(?). It is a tribute to the depths he explores in his stories, and to his tight plotting
