...well only Clouzot is Clouzot.Although the screenplay is different ,"radio corbeau" is nothing but a remake of "le corbeau" that black sparkling diamond of the Occupation years.
What were once scandalous subjects (in 1942,at a time when the Vichy government was lauding the old moral values) have become ,in 1989,simple trite gossips.Time had taken its toll.Yves Boisset has always been a committed director,who's always fought for a good cause.But updating one of the greatest French directors' masterpieces was too much for him.
Watchable,because of the very good cast ,which includes Claude Brasseur,Pierre Arditi and Edith Scob.And the "corbeau" (writer of poison-pent letters,but here he does not write letters anymore, as the title says ,he uses the airwaves)is not the one you expect.There's something of Roger Ackroyd here.
