The murderer is afraid at night.
21 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is the second film by Jean Delannoy and it suffers from a weak story by Pierre Very which insists on the moral side ,the conscience,the necessity for a man to redeem himself.And naturally it's the villains (Mireille Balin and Jules Berry) who walk off with the honors.

Considering the limitations he was working under,Delannoy's work was not bad :the fears of the man after his crime ,the unbearable ticking of the clock(s),the close-ups on his sweaty face are not unworthy of a film noir.Delannoy shows a n interest in secret places as the good girl's strange mill which hides deadly traps ,and the antique dealer's dark den where he plays his blackmailer act .

There are actually two movies and they do not hang well together.The ending is what they call "fabricating a happy end" .
