Clouzot directs with a cruelty that combines a nastily tangled storyline worthy of Hitchcock with three strong performances (one of which is the beautiful Simone Signoret) and a seedy setting.
There are scenes of physical horror, but Clouzot also sets the flesh creeping with incidences of ordinary nastiness.


The remake with Isabelle Adjani, Chazz Palminteri and Sharon... read more

A Movie A Year (Part 1) (103 movies items)

" Note : The directing is quite amazing and provides a mesmerizing eerie atmosphere. The cast composed of the French star Simone Signoret and Vérat Clouzot and they both gave some impressive performances. In my opinion, this movie is the perfect example that you don't need any shootings, explosions or chases to make a fascinating thriller. The characters, the dialogs, the shots built up the tensions, that's it and that's more than enough."
