Something like William Irish
8 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Lune de miel" was greeted in its native country with a lukewarm reception.Elsewhere,it was unnoticed I find it strange that the two comments come from non -French users.But after all,Nathalie Baye,then at the peak of her popularity in France (she was Mrs Johnny Hallyday at the time) ,had an American co-star John "Missing" Shea.

This thriller is not typically French style,whose best directors for that matter were Claude Chabrol and the highly talented Henri-Georges Clouzot.It rather recalls William Irish's (aka Cornell Woolrich aka George Hopley)tragic stories where fate is against heroes (often heroines) :"I married a dead man" (the second version of which featured Baye too),"the bride wore black" "waltz into darkness" ,etc. The ending at the deserted attraction park is also a film noir permanent feature,and Baye's last words are a good twist.Also features French actor Richard Berry.Underrated.
