Good "noir" with excellent jazz accompaniment
27 August 2007 | by hcarasoSee all my reviews

I am not exactly a fan of Robert Hossein, whose ambitions eventually proved too high for his real skill, but I admit that this brief "film noir", fit for a dull August TV afternoon, is very well done, with special compliments for the musio, composed by RH's father, André. The only thing I regret is that the generique doesn't give any name of the jazz musicians playing backstage, with high compliments for the drummer. It is also with a certain nostalgia that I recognized the late Robert Dalban - and Jean Lefebvre - at their debuts.The lovely and remarkable Marie-France Pisier is still active - both sides of the screen - and hasn't much changed after 43 years. harry carasso, Paris, France
