  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Le combat dans l'île

    Premier long métrage d'Alain Cavalier, à connotation fortement politique, aux allures de western métaphorique qui eut à l'époque de sa sortie quelques problèmes avec une tatillonne censure gouvernementale. Reste une oeuvre efficace et solide, qui avait positionné immédiatement le metteur en scène parmi les réalisateurs à suivre... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Alvin Case's rating of the film Le combat dans l'île

    Phenomenal. Absolutely amazing! An genuine example of what cinema art can do. It is a motion picture that, for me, cannot be articulated it can only really be experienced. What better measure for a true act of cinema art.

  3. Caro_its's rating of the film Le combat dans l'île

    Alain Cavalier made his first movie about terrorism and fascism while France is still in war with Algeria. Quite unusual to see a very bad guy in a leading role. Beautiful black and white (cinematography by Pierre Lhomme), Romy Schneider is also really gorgeous.

  4. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Le combat dans l'île

    A pretty black and white suspense film. Good, not great. I think it would have been improved by eliminating the narration.

  5. Ally the Manic Listmaker's rating of the film Le combat dans l'île

    3.5/10 Great dialogue and a lost masterpiece.
