One can imagine some sort of Gallic CSI wasting hundreds of man-hours on this case: namely that of a murdered woman that they could not identify because it turns out the body was 500 years older than first imagined. Why they did not cut through her leg and count the rings in her bones I don’t know, but clearly Brittany sand has special preservative effects. Any similarities to the plot of Francois Ozon’s Under The Sand are also blown away by Ananova’s addition of potentially spurious factoid about the perpetrators of the crime. Clearly when a crime takes place over five hundred years ago one need not be so rigorous in attributing blame, so good luck le flic who made a punt at the crime being perpetrated by pirates. Arrrghhh!!!!
