An old-fashioned film that plays heavily on the story structure of 19th century themes like betrayal and dangerous and lost love both together. I found it highly enjoyable especially to see the acting, the actor Serge Reggiani did a fantastic job in portraying man who can never go straight. I also found that the simplicity of the story-line works by allowing fatal emotions to play through.
An exceptional peek into La Belle Epoque. Beautifully photographed, with a stunning interpretation of "coup de foudre" by the camera man. Saucy melodrama all round: though in gorgeous black and white the sets and costumes at once bring Seurat, Renoir and turn of the century Picasso to mind.
Strange and slighly camp French crime piece. Some great characterisation and interesting in the way conflict develops between those whose world view is basically decent and those on the other side. Some pretty marked social commentary on various groups of society such as working men (the criminals), aristos and the artisan who is the films moral centre. Clearly influenced by and on American crime genre works
One of the most beautiful of movies, so elegant and masterfully composed that it barely registers that you're watching a tale of infighting between ex-cons, pimps, and whores. Signoret was never more gorgeous or deep, and Reggiani is an unorthodox but inspired choice as the instant love of her life. Not an instant of this film is misjudged - it's timeless.
