This film is quite good, but it should be clear that it is very much derived from Les Diaboliques (1955). In fact, the makers tacitly admit as much exactly by casting Simone Signoret in this film. (Apparently, given her physical state in 1967, she could not play Nicole/Jennifer.) The alternative here to the swimming pool is very, very powerful, and one cannot help but think that Boileau (in Celle qui n'était plus) or Clouzot (in Les Diaboliques) would have thought long and hard about using it had it occurred to them.
