Cast / crew
|Les Diaboliques (1954)
Les Diaboliques opens with an excuse for it’s existence and most people will be coming to it because of the connection to Hitchcock’s Vertigo but, as everyone who’s ever seen it can testify, this is a classic in it’s own right. Henri-Georges Clouzot takes a great story, delivers intrigue and tension when he wants to and convincingly builds to a proper scary climax. More attention could have been given to the retired investigator and other teachers at the school to make their parts add fun flavour to the main course but otherwise, this is a must-see masterpiece.
This movie contains a single sexual swear word, mild swear words and substance abuse and violence, inferred sexual violence, unpleasant and scary scenes.
