Le Corbeau Reviews
LE CORBEAU was made in Nazi-occupied France when neighbors did accuse neighbors of assisting in the Resistance. Clouzot nearly never made another movie again, but Germany lost. He was able to direct again in a sovereign France, and no more Clouzot movies would have a been a ghastly terror indeed. A world without LES DIABOLIQUES is not one in which I would like to live.
Une r├┬ (C)alisation simple mais efficace et une brochette de personnages bien camp├┬ (C)s viennent donner vie ├┬á cette intrigue au dialogues sublimes !
Un Classique du Genre et un coup de g├┬ (C)nie pour Clouzot et le Cin├┬ (C)ma Fran├┬žais du dernier si├┬Ęcle.
Though the film is slow to start, it quickly gains momentum in it's final hour as the suspects begin to pile up. People die and lives are shattered all because of the carefully chosen careless words of another.
