Wonderful work deserves a DVD or VHS copy
21 January 2003 | by (ATHENS & PARIS) – See all my reviews

Master Clouzot strikes again as in le Corbeau, another master piece which is invisible today. During some good old days French TV was showing these master pieces. Now, these master pieces are worth of a sacrifice from the all mighty editing firms and should be availiable to connoisseurs!
