Appointment with death
13 July 2007 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Eclecticism has always been Delannoy's trademark.That's why the notorious New Wavelet was always putting him down.

From Madame de la Fayette 's "La Princesse de Clèves" to a Patrick Quentin's detective story,it's a long way indeed.He cast the Duke de Nemours Jean-François Poron as the villain (a photographer) and the princesse de Clèves Marina Vlady's sister,Odile Versois as a black gold tycoon's daughter.A complex plot involves two ex-lovers Annie Girardot and Jean-Claude Pascal,the photographer who is also a blackmailer,a wealthy family with a bad gal ,in the tradition of Dorothy Malone's character in Douglas Sirk's "written on the wind " and of course a cop (Philippe Noiret)..

This is a derivative but entertaining thriller ,with a top-notch French cast.Plus ,icing on the cake ,George Sanders!!
