A classic

Since this flick is on the list '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die', I was definitely eager to check it out. I have already seen two other versions of this story ('Ossessione' (1943), 'The Postman Always Rings Twice' (1981)) and this version is best one I have seen so far (still have to see the very first one 'Le dernier tournant' (1939)), on the other hand, I'm pretty much done with this st... read more

How the passion, plan and murder is carried out is realistically portrayed and it got great photography and plot twists. Hume Cronyn has a small but scene-stealing performance too.
