it is her film. and that is the basic virtue of Henri Decoin and, maybe, the key of success for the movie. Francoise Arnoul has the science to explore the clichés and the tricks of the classic film noir lead heroine from innocence to seduction and her performance is admirable for the gift to save a not realistic script and to give to a war story not exactly credibility but new nuances. her eyes, her vulnerability, her cold blood, the love story as a sketch, like entire film, in fact, are pieces for a nice show and a seductive work. part of post-war French cinema about the Resistance, it reminds methods and styles of many better movies. and that is, in same measure, a precious gift.
