  1. Genadijus L.'s rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    Pure piece of cinematic art! Disturbing, mind-blowing and unconventional.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    "La rivière du hibou" : un homme va être pendu par l'ennemi, depuis un pont. Rêve ou réalité. Sa vie semble se décompter alors qu'il pense pouvoir se sauver... MAGNIFIQUE ! www.cinefiches.com

  3. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    3,5 My favored morceau of Enrico’s „In the Midst Of Life” ternion, bcz it shuns the commonplace of picturing terminal moments mental imagery by retrospective breakneck montage à la Bay’s Armageddon (Enrico’s civilian is an a-steroid saboteur breed) and offers in its place anticipation, prospective escape planned in dilated detail: the hanged woolgathers he broke loose, misleading us along. That doesn’t mean forsaking

  5. hazal ilbay's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    Had been wondering for a while whether Ambrose Bierce's story had an adaptation, great to see such a powerful one as this.

  6. jimmymarkum's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    Magnificent french 'short' that would later feature in the first Twilight Zone series. Archetype of dozens of films 'with a twist' that resurfaced now and then over the decades, the most memorable perhaps being one produced in 1990. More recently not the same twist, but the idea of getting to a point which would allow the makers to wrong-foot the audience seemed to become an easy, overused box-office gimmick. Sadly!

  7. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    ★★★★ "un condamné à mort s'est échappé".

  8. xxthcenturyfoxx's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    The Boarded Window is also great!

  9. Gabriel Argüello's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    Mockingbird and Chickamauga (They're on youtube now!) are two other excellent adaptations.

  10. Marie's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

  11. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    A masterful take on the story by Ambrose Bierce. The relatively unknown french director Robert Enrico merged all the right elements to conjure up a cinematic experience that overflows purity. A magical story, astonishing imagery and no dialogue.

  12. Henrique Amud's rating of the film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

    I love the simplicity of this short movie and it's great storytelling. Yet, it is great in all technical aspects. It even turned out to be broadcasted in USA as an Twilight Zone episode.
