Under rated french Noir!!!
11 September 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

The old treasures of worldwide's cinema reachs us after DVD's advent,this month came out a box of French's Noir,inside it a little gem with the great Jean Gabin and Danielle Darrieux,this pleasant picture was directed by an unknown craftsman Gilles Grangier who wasn't got a propper respect likes others french directors,but he owe nothing to anybody else,in fact a little masterpiece,driven it to smallest persons or invisibles ones who carry the world,besides Gabin desmiss any kind of feedback over such prominence who includes Darrieux too,all small characters has something to offer for the picture's success while still doesn't appeared here on IMDB yet,but cetainly in short time as soon as possible in face a priceless work!!

Resume:

First watch: 2018 / How many: 1 / Source: DVD / Rating: 8.75
