Dark love-story
15 December 2003 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

It's your typical Henri-Georges Clouzot romance: boy meets girl, girl wants money, boy starts life of crime, boy and girl meet tragic fate. Star of the show Cécile Aubry is one hot chick and I can see why men would risk life, limb and reputation for her, but as an actress she's a bit too lightweight to be a convincing femme fatale. There is still plenty to like however: Clouzot's virtuousity with the camera, gorgeous cinematography and humor so dark it makes Kill Bill look like a Danny Kaye vehicle.

***1/3
