Need help naming an international film...
About two years ago I was watching a French film on the Bravo TV network. I was captivated by the movie.

The story took place throughout a dark stormy night inside an old police station near the edge of a small town. (The movie is based during the modern era). With a leaky roof and a typewriter, a French police inspector is interrogating a suspect about a recent murder.

The film has lots of dialog between the inspector and suspect. The detective types a lot and tries to intimidate the person under suspician. All the while, there are a lot of short flashbacks and the whatnot.

So can some genius out there name this one? I could give more information, but I am pretty much tapped out.

I'm pretty sure it's "Una Pura formalita" ("A Pure Formality") starring Gerard Depardieu and Roman Polanski. I remember the storyline from when it came out, though I've yet to see it. Sounds very interesting!

Yup, rkndkn is correct. Excellent film by the way.
