Since I’m a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was really eager to check this flick. Unfortunately, honestly, I thought that the whole thing was slightly disappointing. I mean, I did like it but I was expecting more from it. Indeed, the concept (a renowned but retired thief is accused of stealing some jewels so he intends to catch the real thing) really sounded pretty cool but, unfortunately, the s... read more

Cary Grant. Grace Kelly. Alfred Hitchcock. The French Riviera.   There’s nothing else you need to make a wildly entertaining thrill ride, complete with some romance, action, and beautiful jewels. It’s charming minor Hitchcock, but an entry that is demonstrative of his range as an artist. After the one-two punch of the prior year’s Dial M for Murder and Rear Window, both claustrophobic mo... read more

This movie won the Academy Award for cinematography and it shows. The scenery of the French Riviera is shown throughout and is done beautifully.

This was a romantic thriller by Alfred Hitchcock. It was amusing enough, but not the caliber of movie that I normally associate with Hitchcock.

The romance was odd and seemed to really be one-sided, with Francie pursuing relentl... read more

" Notes: Honestly, I thought that the whole thing was slightly disappointing. I mean, I did like it but I was expecting more from it. Indeed, the concept really sounded pretty cool but, unfortunately, the story turned out to be rather dull after all. Apparently, Hitchcock didn’t focus too much on the plot which was rather light and frivolous. Instead, he focused more on the relationship between Cary Grant and Grace Kelly and, fortunately, they had a great chemistry together. Indeed, Cary Grant"

"1.1.2020, YLE Areena Värikäs ja näyttävä, Rivieran maisemia tyylikkäällä laajakuvalla hyödyntävä hömppähitchcock. Juoni on ihan puutaheinää ja Grantin ja Kellyn (kaunis!) välinen sanailu on aivan luonnotonta näsäviisastelua, mutta kaikesta huolimatta puolisentoista tuntia kuluu sujuvasti eikä tätä katsoessa kyllä varsinaisesti tylsää tullut."

"My least favorite Carry Grant film so far, and my least favorite Hitchcock. This film won an Oscar for cinematography! Absurd! There where a couple scenes with lighting that where lovely, especially Grace Kelly talking to Cary Grant in the hotel room at night, diamonds sparkling at her neck. Cary Grant on the roof at the end had a decent moment as well. But for the most part I wasn't charmed, I've seen older films do a better job cobbling scenes together than this. Awkward and cheap spectacle. A"
