This is a rare beauty of a film. (PLEASE release it on DVD). The film is a character study, and a masterful thriller. I saw on TV way back in the 60's and it has haunted me since. The opening scene, on a train, a boy is killed. The star ( the beautiful Ingrid Thulin) looks off in a "thousand-year" stare. She does not react to the tragedy. The camera pans back, and you see the number tattooed on her arm.
The film is shot, masterfully, in post-war Paris. People are just beginning to cope with life again, after the Nazi occupation. The Doctor returns to work, and her Husband (Maximilian Schell,in a career-defining role), hires her to impersonate his wife, whom he believes to be dead.
The gorgeous Samantha Eggar, slinks around the house. Oozing with sexuality, you drool over her character.
After some plot twists, including the fabled bath scene, you are drawn into the plot. The film continues with some nail-biting, and the conclusion is just fine.
I will scour my TV listings, and pray it comes back on!
