identify actress Marie Dubois
18 January 2008 | by yvoncSee all my reviews

I have seen and recorded this movie by Claude Chabrol on the TV. I have been a fan of Chabrol's films for many many years. Let's say that the suspense master Claude Chabrol is the French equivalent to Alfred Hitchckok. The actors Serrault and Huppert are good but the one that I found particularly excellent is the head mafiosi who listens to the opera in the mafia Caribbean quarters. What a presence, what a good actor! It is also good to see a movie that is not saturated with special effects as films are done now, with excess. I hate those special effects because they are never perfect illusions, and they almost never fool me. Films are also always enhanced by the nice scenery they contain and "Rien ne va plus" is no exception. Actress Marie Dubois is in the film for a small role, but I have been unable to identify her. Can someone identify her for me, please? Thanks. YC
