Winston "Marnie" Graham Is Not Well Served by This Carnival
7 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

It's odd to find fault with the fact that the full 91-minute version of this movie has been released on DVD instead of the cut-down 83-minute U.S. theatrical print, but this movie is the exception that proves the rule. The extra 8 minutes in the Brazilian version released in 1962 under the title Socia de alcoba, has nothing to do with the movie whatever. It's a completely extraneous episode in which two killers talk endlessly as they stalk their prey in the jungle. Not that this murder mystery is all that exciting in the original, despite a great deal of lensing on actual Brazilian locations. True, Jean-Pierre Aumont (who has the advantage of dubbing his English dialogue with his own distinctive voice) does his best to stir up a bit interest in the character's efforts to escape the police while he finds the real killer, but unfortunately he is stymied by a plot that takes forever and a century (particularly in the DVD version) to get under way and a total lack of talent in the directorial chair.
