I wonder how I managed to miss ever seeing this film, being a big Clouzot fan, but miss it I had. But we've rectified that now thanks to this spectacular new Blu-ray transfer from Criterion. The movie itself is a fine one - a little long for its own good - but with a brilliant performance by Bardot and the rest of the cast is equally wonderful. I'll say nothing about the plot - best not to give things away, other than to say what exactly IS the truth?
But the transfer I'm happy to talk about. It glistens and gleams with the best of the black-and-white transfers - great clarity, contrast - it's luscious-looking and so nice to have in its proper screen ratio. This should be a no-brainer for any serious classic film fan. Highly recommended by the likes of me.
