A young man, morally destroyed by his parents not loving him and by the fear of being not capable to make his girlfriend happy, rises on the ledge of a building with the intention of committing suicide. A policeman makes every effort to argue him out of that.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
**1/2. As I was watching R. Basehart on the ledge of the building, I was wondering how many times I had already seen this scene in movies. And then it struck me that maybe, it was the first time a director had this idea (if I'm wrong, you're free to intervene here). Now, the guy is neurotic, two psychiatrists help him and WWII was only 6 years back. Brando and Jimmy Dean are just around the corner. Not so bad.
Un jeune homme, sur la corniche d'un immeuble de quinze étages de New York, menace de se jeter dans le vide. Tout va être tenté pour le faire renoncer à son funeste projet ..... Prenant de bout en bout !
