Aside from the shouts of the soldiers and the song that plays as the prisoner floats to safety, there is no dialogue (not counting the edited Twilight Zone (1959) version narration by Rod Serling). This is significant because the original episode of The Twilight Zone was also almost completely devoid of dialogue. See more »
The snippets of English dialogue are all spoken with French accents even though these are supposed to be Americans. See more »
Although only a 'short', this is my all time favourite film.
Everything about this film is just right. Camera work, direction and acting are all in harmony. Since I first saw this film, as a fill-in to 'The Birds', it has been unquestionably my favourite film of all time, beating even 'Potemkin'.
