Gabin wanted Sophia Loren....
2 February 2005 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

....And he won the case."Verdict" is however one Cayatte too many.Realism which saved "justice est faite" "les risques du metier" and solid screenplays which made "avant le deluge" or "le glaive et la balance interesting if overblown works became some kind of "enough is enough" .For the first time in his career,Cayatte included nude scenes (Muriel Catala and Michel Albertini,the doomed lovers,appear in their birthday suit during a whole sequence ,more a desire to be a la mode than a genuine artistic move!).

Sophia Loren portrays a woman whose son might have killed her lover (see above).In order to put pressure on the judge (Gabin) she abducts his wife (Gisèle Cassadessus) a diabetic,which makes the matters worse.

Watchable because of the actors.But do not expect much.
