Francois Truffaut, director of Love on the Run, The Green Room, The Last Metro, Confidentially Yours, Fahrenheit 451, and The 400 Blows, delivers The Bride Wore Black. The storyline for this picture is very interesting and well delivered. The pace is a bit slow but the acting and methodical approach was worth following. The cast includes Jeanne Moreau, Charles Denner, Michael Bouquet, and Claude Rich.

This grabbed my wife's attention while flicking through the channels so she decided to DVR it. I was interested that Hitchcock loved this novel and movie. I did enjoy the film but felt it was a little slower at times than it needed to be and certain scenes could have been edited out. Overall, this is a worthwhile picture if you're a fan of crime drama that feels like a Hitchcock gem.
