(OK) So elegant, bien fait, great acting by them all, specially by Berry as le diable meme. Decors are irreal, dreamlike secuences are fascinant inside the irreaism predominant...
View all The Devil's Envoys (1942) reviews
The Devil's Envoys is predicated on the 15th century French legend, wherein the Devil, disturbed by the encroaching forces of Good, sends his envoys to Earth in the form of a minstrel couple to wreak anarchy on hapless mortals. The Devil, in a subtly Hitler-like fashion, is thwarted when his agents are unable to overcome the power of true love. Even after the lovers are turned to stone for defying His Satanic Majesty, their hearts continue to beat for each other. Much to the Devil's dismay, instead of corrupting the human race, he finds he has no lasting power over affairs of the heart.
Release date: 29 August 1947

" 6.2. HITLER'S PROPHECY - MINUN VALINTANI Ajattelin jotenkin tämänkertaisen teeman tarjoilevan sen verran masentavaa filmiä etten viitsinyt itse kaivaa jotain keskitysleirielokuvaa tai natsipropagandaa esiin, vaan valinnakseni päätyi Marcel Carnén sota-allegoriana pidetty ritarielokuva. Siinä pari taianomaista tyyppiä saapuu hoviin manailemaan että paholainen saapuu muuten kohta. Toinen heppuleista paljastuukin kaikki katsojat shokeeraavasti naiseksi ja sitten rakastutaan. Komeasta pu"
