It was Sir Walter Scott who wrote, "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive," and few thrillers have exposed the truthfulness of that statement like Sweet Killing (1993). The movie concerns itself with the "perfect crime", which in this case is Anthony Higgins's murder of his nightmare of a wife, played by Andréa Ferréol, who didn't seem so bad in Les Galettes de Pont-Aven (1975) and Submission (1976). But Higgins offs her and sets into play a paranoid drama that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. Audiences will flip their seats, however, when Leslie Hope offers the one ray of Hope in the picture, a topless bedroom tryst. That will cause some sweet killing of sperm.
