I saw a french film on television in the late seventies about a father whose son is killed by a hit and run driver. The father tracks the driver down and discovers he has a son about the same age as his dead son. He befriends the boy and discovers that he hates his father. Does anybody know the name of this film and provide me with more information? I thought it was called revenge or something similar.

Sounds like Que La Bete Meure/ Killer! (1969), an above average film from Claude Chabrol.

It's definitely Que La Bete Meure - I'm embarrassed I didn't think of it myself. A very good film.
