It was Louis Malle's first movie and his first movie was already a masterpiece. A great film noir with a very famous soundtrack provided by Miles Davis.

Description: This is an excellent example of "theatre of the absurd", filmed as a "film noir" suspense thriller. "Theatre of the absurd" posits that the universe is a random entity where nothing is likely to happen as expected. I believe Camus and other French writers of his era were the principle exponents of this vi ... (more)

"29.7. Teknisesti todella pätevä ja sopivan ytimekäs debyytti ja ensimmäinen nähty elokuva Mallelta, jossa asiat menevät kiehtovasti pieleen itse kullakin. Ei ehkä mestariteos, mutta muutamien avainelementtiensä ansiosta oma lukunsa elokuvahistoriassa."

"Film noirin katselun aiemmin unohtaneena oli Hissillä mestauslavalle itselleni oikein miellyttävä kokemus.

Tunnelmaakin elokuvasta löytyy sateen ropistessa kadulle öiseltä taivaalta tai jazzin puhaltaessa jostain kaukaisuudesta. Matkaa mestariteokseen toki löytyy tietynlaisen pitkittämisen j"
