Film-Noir…That's French
9 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Long Lost Foreign Film-Noir that wasn't available for Viewing in the US until 2001, it finally arrived and was well Received by Critics and Favorably Reviewed by Film-Noir Enthusiasts.

It could be called a Cinematographers Movie because it is Literally Drenched in Fog, Shadows, Rain, and Darkness. Almost all of the Movie takes place at Night except the Beginning and the End.

Cigarettes dangle from Luscious Lips, smoke and fog swirl as the Title Character is on the Lam after Escaping the Clutches of the Law that is only a Step Behind. Things weave in and out of Dingy Establishments, such as a Bi-Sexual Smut Peddler's claustrophobic Apartment loaded with Girly Photos on the Wall and a Fluffy White Cat who turns out to be a real Friend to this Pathetic Person.

The two Leads, Dane Clark and Simone Signoret are Fantastic and the Supporting Players are all just Fine, but it is the Ambiance and the Gritty Tone that makes this a Joy to Watch.

Ironically it was the French Film Critics that noticed and Coined the term Film-Noir, and here there Brainchild came Home to Roost. It was Welcomed with this Allied Collaboration and Delivered one of its own, True to Form for the Genre and added a Fine Entry for the Pantheon.
