haunting movie, especially when you discover it as a kid
18 January 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I was ten when I began watching good movies. Les Jeux Sont Faits was one of them, and as a young boy, this romantic fantastic noir from 1947 impressed me deeply and forever. Except that I was too young to remember the title of the movie and the director's and actors name, ... but the story, impossible to forget, haunting me for nearly forty years.

And last week, searching in a huge video club, I finally rediscovered it. What a surprise : Jean Delannoy, Jean-Paul Sartre, Micheline Presles and the great cinematographer Christian Matras (three masterpieces with Max Ophüls and many more).

Despite a too old cassette edition, the souvenir was intact and the emotion even stronger. A real forgotten french romantic fantastic noir movie masterpiece, sadly with no DVD edition, I just don't understand.

But maybe we can think of hope with the "musée Jean Delannoy", time will tell ...
