  • As a demonstration of human nature, we're afraid that this film Henri-Georges Clouzot has helped adapt and has directed fails to convey why a man would throw himself at the feet of an obviously no-good dame.

  • Clouzot's craftsmanship and style made an impression at the Venice Festival and it won Best Film in 1949.

  • A pointed and powerful metaphor for the futility of war and the damage it does to the human spirit -- and one of Clouzot's finest films.
