Four persons drive each other to the edge in a powerful drama.
To see Anthony Quinn in yet another wonderful performance is always a pleasure. This time the drama is not set in vast planes or big boats, but in a living room in which a reproduction of a Cezanne painting is the only thing worth mentioning. So much more for the story; fit to be a Tennessee Williams-drama, but written by Pierre Rey. Maybe the acting of Ava Gardner is slightly over the top every now and then, but Ray Sharkey is fine and Anna Karina as the shy 'Regina' is as great as the old fox Quinn. The quality of the dvd is poor, but what is depicted is really worth attention. A good film.
