I spent the past couple of evenings watching this film, directed in 1947 by René Clément. It is a very dark piece but very exciting, innovative and superbly planned and executed.

The Extras on the DVD are also well worth watching, describing René Clément's approach to plot, set and direction of actors.

If you are like me and like something with depth and real quality perhaps you too will enjoy it. It was released on DVD in the US a few years ago so you might find you can get it in the UK as well.
