Audience Reviews for Devil's Hand

It would appear that you have the devil to pay. A struggling painter is presented with an offer he can't refuse...a left hand in a box. He is told that if he replaces his own left hand with the hand in the box he will become a wildly successful painter that will garner the woman of his dreams, money beyond his wildest imagination, and all the hand will cost him is his soul. The painter takes the deal and is shortly thereafter followed by a little man in a hat who just so happens to be the devil himself. "Even the devil cannot sell what is not his to sell." Maurice Tourneur, director of The Last of the Mohicans (1920), The Blue Bird, The Poor Little Rich Girl, Sins of Youth, Crimson Dynasty, and Valley of Hell, delivers Devil's Hand. The storyline for this picture is awesome. I adored the storytelling nature feel of this picture as well as the characters, conclusion, and acting. The cast includes Pierre Fresnay, Josseline Gael, and Pierre Larquey. "When your soul is at stake you cannot concentrate." This is another movie I DVR'd off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) this holiday season. I was thoroughly impressed by the plot, pace, and feel of this movie. The acting was so good as was the script. This is a very complete and underrated gem. I strongly recommend seeing this picture. "Risky or not, we all have to die sometime." Grade: A
