(1955, Henri-Georges Clouzot) Downtrodden wife Vera Clouzot and no-nonsense mistress Simone Signoret team up to eliminate their perfect salaud husband/lover... and then la terreur commence. Dizzying plot twists lead to an eyeball-glazing dénouement in Clouzot’s suspense masterpiece. Approx. 117 min. 35mm.



"The morbid fascination starts building before the picture is ten minutes gone. By the time it is rolling toward a climax it is spreading the most delicious chills. It is a pip of a murder thriller, ghost story and character play rolled into one."
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

“Cruel, sour, and – unfortunately – very effective.”
– David Kehr
