The French genre of film noir is present here. Amazing!! This will definitely fill the appetite of those interested in such filmmaking styles.
View all The Raven reviews
Description: The screenplay is based on a true story which took place in Tulle (Corrèze, France) in the 1920s. A mysterious writer of poison-pen letters, known only as Le Corbeau (the Raven), plagues a French provincial town, unwittingly exposing the collective suspicion and rancor seething beneath the community’s calm surface. Made during the Nazi Occupation of France, Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Le Corbeau was attacked by the right-wing Vichy regime, the left-wing Resistance press, the Catholic Church, and was banned after the Liberation. But some—including Jean Cocteau and Jean-Paul Sartre—recognized the powerful subtext to Clouz ... (more)

"Watched on tv. A vicious series of poison-pen letters spreads rumours, suspicion and fear among the inhabitants of a small French town, and one after another, they turn on each other as their hidden secrets are unveiled - but the one secret that no-one can uncover is the identity of the letters' author. I recommend this classic french film"

" So, no this isn't a horror film staring Vincent Price. It is complex and dark film about a town terrorized by a poison pen writer. I watched the Criterion dvd, then watched the special features. The interview with Bertand Tarvernier, director of Coup de Torchon was extreamly informative and gave a lot of insight into the film. Also, into the early years of French Cinema. The excerpts from a 1975 documentary "The Story of French Cinema" was interesting but on the whole rather disappointing a"

"Day 2 - Obscure film discovery. I would have never watched this film unless... History of Horror by diabolical dr voodoo diabolical dr voodoo has compiled the most exhaustive list of horror films I've ever seen, so when I was creating my own "Horror favorites" lists for each decade I used his list as a reference. Not only did it remind me of a few I've seen and hadn't thought of in a while, but it provided me with a slew of films I hadn't heard of to check out. Le Corbeau was among them, a Fre"

"First viewing I'd intended to go to bed after updating this list with Seven Samurai, but when I looked at my instant queue I noticed this film (which I'd recently added) was also leaving today. As you can see by my rating, it was worth staying up for. I now have a new favorite horror movie for the 1940s."

"13.3. 2011 Disturbing letters written by a mysterious person called The Raven causes a wave of hysteria in a small town. One of the notable targets of The Raven is the village doctor, who is soon accused of adultery and giving abortions. "Le Corbeau" is a subtle masterpiece, an ingenious mix of psychological thriller and mystery film that tells a lot about complexity of human nature."
