Eleven o'clock lady
20 October 2007 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Jean Devaivre was one of the characters of Bertrand Tavernier's "Laissez-Passer" ,a film about French cinema during the Occupation years.He began as an assistant with notably Maurice Tourneur ,then made a few movies,none of them was particularly memorable.

"La Dame de Onze heures " is probably his most satisfying effort.In spite of a muddled screenplay,it succeeds in laughing at the clichés of the detective film.Paul Meurisse,many users saw in Clouzot's celebrated "Diabolique" is the sleuth ,and he gets good support from Micheline Francey,Jean Tissier,Gilbert Gil and others.It also predates something that would appear later in the movies:no cast and credits before the ending.
