A screenplay which ,all in all,is another update of "Le Comte De Monte Cristo" .A man everybody thought was dead comes back and wants to avenge himself."Nuit D'or" is all form and no content.Although it shows Langesque and German Expressionnismus influence -which Klaus Kinski's presence reinforces-,the screenplay,which remains very loose and unsatisfying is close to Fantomas and thus to Feuillade's works in the silent age (the director,Moati told it so:he wanted a popular cinema a la Fantomas").An extremely interesting cast is wasted :Apart from Kinski,veterans Charles Vanel and Bernard Blier -who both seem ill-at-ease in that context-,Maurice Ronet,Marie Dubois and Anny Duperey as some kind of priestess of a maleficent sect .
