A mix of courtroom drama and crime thriller, GUILTY? is an interesting little film that works despite the lack of familiar cast members. It's actually a French film masquerading as a British one; although it's listed as a British co-production and has a handful of British actors in support (most notably Donald Wolfit playing the judge) this is most definitely a French-feeling movie.
The story is about a young woman who stands accused of murder by stabbing at a plush hotel. A group of somewhat shady employees and inhabitants are ranged against her, but she protests her innocence despite having a volatile history with the murder victim. Her new solicitor decides to see if any new evidence can be brought to life so joins forces with a Frenchman to investigate.
What follows is something of a conspiracy of silence broken up by a handful of rather exciting action sequences. The budget is clearly low and yet this looks like a medium to high money production with lots of different locations in both London and France and a good range of cast members. The storyline and its eventual outcome are quite easy to guess and yet the characters keep you involved and the cast members are pretty decent too. Edmond Greville was a French director well known for making BEAT GIRL and THE HANDS OF ORLAC and GUILTY? is certainly a feather in his cap.
