| Enjoyable French thriller
Saw this enjoyable French thriller on TV.Although the plot is nothing new, it is presented in the charming way that only French can do.Nice dialogs, very good acting.Director Decoin is famous for those B type French films which excitingly reveal the life in French province. The beginning with escape scenes and car crash are a bit naive, but after that film develops quickly. Camera work, in black and white, with interior scenes is a jewel. Reminds of other French master movie makers. The lighting, the contrasts are exquisite.Actor Perre Fresnay is convincing in the title role of bad guy.This film shows what can be done with simple story that still glues one to the screen without having special effects, car chases and the usual high noise effects that Hollywood is bombarding us nowadays.
