Exciting French whodunit thriller., 6 December 2001
Author: dbdumonteil

It's a Georges Lacombe 's movie,but actually, it marks the birth of a giant of the French cinema:Henri-George Clouzot.Here credited "Georges Clouzot",he wrote the dialogue,and his wicked sarcastic humor occasionally surfaces.

From Belgian Stanislas-André Steeman 's detective story "six hommes morts" (six dead men),it's really a very exciting thriller.Six friends go their separate ways during five years in order to make their fortune around the world.When they go back,some have succeeded,some have failed.But one of them covets the whole pile and is doing away with his former mates.To reveal more would be a real spoiler.Suffice to say there's a very good suspense sustained till the very end.

Not only Clouzot wrote the script,but he also provided the movie with a female star :his then-partner Suzy Delair.She portrays exasperating Mila Malou,detective Wens (Fresnay)'s girlfriend. The movie was a commercial success,and Clouzot became a director:his first movie was the wonderful "l'assassin habite au 21" (a must!a must!) which reunited Fresnay and Delair playing the same characters of another SA Steeman book.
