Movie Info

Supposedly a metaphor for Hitler's occupation of France, on the surface this is a fairy tale about Satan's determined interference between two lovers in fifteenth century France. Of course, like all fairytales, true love will always find a way. If Hitler had realized that this was meant to signify his inability to blunt the spirit of the French, he undoubtedly would have squelched its release, which happened after the Nazis occupied France.

Critic Reviews for Les Visiteurs du Soir

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

The dialogue gets increasingly lachrymose, and the slow pace begins to take its toll. Wonderful performances, though, and graced with an undeniable visual splendour.

An eerie and often beautiful medieval fantasy parable.

A lavish spectacle with a very simple love-conquers-all theme.
