Saw this on TV just by chance in a sleepless night and couldn't get my eyes off it. I literally was hypnotized. And i really was lucky as this one is really, really difficult to find. Yes it is a TV movie, but it was shown in theaters too. At this time Welles was finding it hard to make a living, and this is actually his final directing job. Moreau has never been so beautiful and mysterious, Welles has never been so impressive and fragile. This is also the only work in colour by Welles, and boy, does he know how to use colour. Once again this one makes you forget that you are watching a movie, in fact, you are actually watching a painting in the making, until the final touch.
