a classic french movie
September 25, 2008
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.

Turn of the century gangsters, waltzes, boating, ladies of the evening, honor, dishonor, and righteous violence. And Signoret! A marvelous entertainment.

Simone Signoret est super dans ce film ! C'est un film qui montre la belle époque mais aussi sa montre un amour intense !
Je l'ai adoree ! Un grand classic .

Great classic crime drama - Signoret is captivating and the social commentary is powerful. A mixture of melodrama, realism and slapstick - what more could you ask for?

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.

Testament to Signoret's total mastery of her art.

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

Simone Signoret was never more captivating than in this moving costume drama, a sad tale of a fatal love-triangle told with poignancy and poetry.

Pedestrian in nearly every way.

Slightly dated. Subtle and faceted.

nina simone got her stage name after watching this movie inspired by the actress simone signoret
½ November 11, 2007
A well-shot, modest costume drama/period piece that doesn't get bogged down by the conventions of those genres and delivers a great story with noteworthy style.
½ October 21, 2007
The main character annoyed me, but the plot was all right.

didnt get it. the new wave period piece went right by. i found the direction to be fairly blase compared to goddard, truffaut, and rohmer. i dont know. i guess i dont like simone signoret either

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.
