A great classic

" Notes: Eventually, even though some old classics sometimes don’t really live up to their reputation, this one certainly didn’t disappoint me. Indeed, even though the damned thing is almost 60 years old, it has aged very well and it is considered as one of the greasted classics produced in France. Well, it was definitely a fascinating picture. Back then, obviously, there was no CGI, no expansive special effects but still it really succeeds in being completely suspensful, in fact, it is much"

"William Friedkin's 1977's film "Sorcerer" updated this story and translated it into the English language. Both are great."
