This might be the least known of Clement's films.It has an intriguing beginning and an unexpected end;in between ,it's sometimes dull.
The film begins with a strange monologue by Michèle Morgan :sometimes we feel she is out of her mind.Then she and Jean Marais (what a beautiful pairing:) go to a ball : a mystery atmosphere almost predating that of "Last Year in Marienbad" .
The cinematography is dazzling and really flatters the stars.But the story itself is never really exciting,cause we've been through this should-I-leave-my-husband/Heartbreaker -finding- true-love run-of-the-mill too many times.
The ending may have disconcerted the audience of 1950 that was not used to that kind of unexpected thing.There's something of "twelve monkeys" here;actually the movie will end in the future tense.
