| Pattes Blanches
I'd like to talk about some details: The flashback ,which is very short ,allows some doubt about the murderer.I watched it picture by picture and I really cannot tell:it seems it's only a veil which is falling.Did she jump or was she pushed?But what's extraordinary is the obvious connection with Gremillon's later work "Pattes Blanches" (1947): the murder of the bad girl (Suzy Delair) by Maurice (Michel Bouquet) on the cliff,and the white bride veil .

Another thing that seems amazing: at the beginning of the French talkies period,the actors used to overplay,in a theatrical way (see Marcel Lherbier's or Abel Gance's works circa 1930).Here their performances are almost amateurish ,in the Bressonesque sense of the word.
