Juliette Greco seduces Yves Rénier who, with René Dary, searches for Belphegor
28 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the English-subtitled version of "Belphegor" (1965) in 4 parts that runs 289 minutes. The time went by quickly during this entertaining picture.

The things that impressed me the most were the novelty of the story, the originality of the dialog as connected to the depth of the characters as they interacted, the acting of Juliette Greco and René Dary, and the exterior cinematography. Much of this black and white film has dark settings, giving it a thorough noir look and appeal. However, some scenes are too dark for my tastes; they require more John Alton type lighting.

The story-telling tone is something like the German krimis, those that began in 1959 by bringing Edgar Wallace stories to the screen; but it's more restrained. The movie has its moments of suspense and tension, but the mystery and the pursuit of the enigmatic Belphegor dominate. Rather, the novelty of the writing carry us along. For example, Juliette Greco openly tells Yves Rénier her designs on him. He finds her irresistible and yet he's attracted to Christine Delaroche. She, in turn, is open with him about his dalliance with Greco. The police commissioner played by René Dary, is surprisingly blunt and perceptive in his dealings with everyone, including his daughter Delaroche and all those who are touched by the Belphagor conspiracy. The picture takes plenty of time to develop these interesting conversations that go beyond clichéd conflicts, and this writing is a major plus for the picture.
