Tight rope
7 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

At the time ,in the wake of the success of highly talented Clouzot's "Les Diaboliques" ,a lot of French directors tried their hand at thrillers .This one boasts a great pair of actors (Annie Girardot and François Périer);plus a young Georges Descrieres (the French audience knows as Arsene Lupin in a rather mediocre TV series which did not do the books justice).But the screenplay,based on the eternal love triangle,is as old as the hills and the average viewer has guessed who hides under the bandages as soon as the injured driver appears bedridden in a gloomy hospital.And the ending is a damp squib, a shame for a movie which claims to be a thriller!don't be diabolic!don't you recommend that!
