Trivia

Rita Hayworth, in a financial distress at the time, joined the crew with a slight apprehension because of a previous film experience in Italy where she had not been treated too well. Georges Lautner later claimed that she was so warmly welcome by his production team and felt so happy during shooting, she genuinely weeped when time came to split up. See more »

absorbing mood piece
29 May 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

an immensely satisfying film which grabs you from the beginning and never causes you to lose interest ... Just what is going on? Ironically this film was meant as a "come back" for Rita Hayworth and her poignant portrayal is worth the price of entry. Mimsy Farmer is super, as always (does anyone know why her career seems limited to these imported suspense movies) and Robert Walker Jr. is right on target as the narrator of the tale.
