Criterion has finally come forward and put this amazing horror film out in a beautiful quality version. Henri Georges Clouzot bring to the screen this excellent film about two women who plot to kill a sadistic man over a long weekend from teaching school.
One of the women is his wife, the other his mistress. Vera Clouzot is perfect as the wife and Simone Signoret is even better as the mistress. Paul Meurisse is the sadistic man they want to kill.
If you have never seen this film you are in for a treat of twists and turns that have been copied by ever movie since this film came out.
The ending is a kicker in being on of the most chilling ever. They don't make movies like this anymore, and they even attempted a remake with dire results.
Highly Recommended from Criterion.
