another Carlos Hugo Christensen masterpiece
23 February 2019 | by happytrigger-64-390517See all my reviews

I discovered my first Carlos Hugo Christensen films noir with "No Abras Nunca Esa Puerta", brilliant adaptation of two William Irish novels, with an astounding cinematography.

So I got back to youtube, and found that second adaptation of Steeman's "l'Assassin Habite Au 21", after Clouzot's already brilliant direction. And the result is again marvellous, everything is chirurgically precise : cinematography, editing, actors direction (and they're all excellent, very tense). I cannot say more without spoiling, it's a true cinema lesson to be studied in universities.

On youtube, there are two versions : don't chose the 1h13 with nasty print, search the 1h20 restored and be ready to discover a completly forgotten and truely cinematic director, Carlos Hugo Christensen. Brilliant director from 1939 to 1996.
