The Theme Music will tear your heart out !
25 May 2002 | by nicholas.rhodesSee all my reviews

A young couple are found dead in a car and the film is basically a flashback over the period preceding their deaths to find out why. The police inspector investigating is played by Louis Jouvet, a great French actor of long ago. I was most impressed by the theme music which created within me as much if not more emotion than that of "Le Diable au Corps" though the composer of this one was Paul Misraki (that man must have been a genius, he wrote so many lovely tunes) and that of Le Diable au Corps was written by Rene Clöarec. The film itself is to me less emotional than Le Diable au Corps, but nevertheless very good (but the plots aren't the same ). However, performances of all actors were very good especially Jouvet. Picture quality is fairly mediocre, let us hope that it will be remasterized and edited on DVD !
