No exit
16 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

The late forties/fifties were a time when Sartre's works were often transferred to the screen .In the space of seven years ,there was "Les Jeux Sont Faits" by Jean Delannoy "Huis Clos" by Jacqueline Audry and "La Putain Respectueuse" by Brabant/Pagliero.The three films are commendable .

Brabant/Pagliero's film is faithful to the writer's play.It sure was not easy to locate the story in America ,to find an actress in the Gloria Grahame mold and to recreate the riots and the atmosphere of America but they manage quite well.Barbara Laage is convincing and her last scene with the unfortunate black young man very moving.No exit indeed.It's quite possible that Sartre's story was inspired by black writer Richard Wright who took refuge in France .
