Mortelle Randonnée is a 1983 French thriller film inspired by the novel Eye of the Beholder by Marc Behm. Directed by filmmaker Claude Miller, the film stars Michel Serrault as The "Eye" Beauvoir, Isabelle Adjani as Catherine, and Geneviève Page as Mme. Schmidt-Boulanger. The film had a total of 916,868 admissions in France.[1]

Mortelle Randonnée was released in the United States as Deadly Circuit and in the United Kingdom as Deadly Run. The film was re-made in 1999 as Eye of the Beholder.


The plot revolves around Catherine, a serial killer who seduces men and then murders them throughout countries in Europe. Catherine is trailed by the detective "The Eye" Beauvoir, who fantasizes that she is his long-lost daughter and disposes of her trail of corpses to foil the police. Catherine has a real love affair with a blind architect (Sami Frey) but Beauvoir's jealousy causes the man's death. Catherine returns to her psychotic killing. As the police dragnet closes in, Catherine and Beauvoir have their final showdown.



Music for the film was composed by (and traditional tunes arranged by) Carla Bley, performed by The Carla Bley Band.[2]
