  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

    4.5* Beautiful restoration of a quintessential Post-war French Crime film. It seems like every trope associated with the genre is here: a femme fatale singing with a cigarette in her mouth, the unfaithful cabaret singer and her shlub husband, the patient and wise detective, and all in a multitude of fabulous but typical Parisian locations. If you've got a craving for an old French Crime Picture, this will satisfy it.

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

    Another Clouzot masterpiece, this time moving, 'behind our backs', from a comedy of manners to a crime thriller, combining genuinely erotic flavour of both heterosexual and homosexual leanings. Jouvet is brilliant as the detective, whose geometrical mind unravels the mystery, a character whose sexual repression (the can-can backstages) is sublimated into protection of the dispossessed in what is ravishing cinema!

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

    Classique du cinéma français d'après-guerre d'une maîtrise cinématographique parfaite et référentielle. A voir et à revoir, toutes affaires cessantes... www.cinefiches.com

    Dated and a bit awkward acting at times, but I liked the post-war setting. DCP

  5. Ethan's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

    This is a beautiful noir thriller from one of the greatest masters of the cinema Henri Georges Clouzot. Clouzot's filmmaking was revolutionary and his influence can be seen in almost every facet of the cinema. A true artist who was far superior to Hitchcock.

  7. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

  8. José Neves's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

    Seen at the Cinematheque, in a very old copy, without contrast and terrible sound and, even then, its virtues of mise-en-scène survived: what a great movie!

  9. Guy Budziak's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

    God I love this film. Louis Jouvet has never been better, and those who think of Clouzot as a misanthrope, they need to see this. The cinematography is splendid, the characters wonderfully developed and what a treat to see France at this point in time, the theaters, the streets... Bernard Blier and Suzy Delair also deserve mention, as the couple who serve as the film's central focus they really are charming, lovely.

  11. Daniela's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

    Unnnnnnn, so good! I think the only thing was the little black boy with the snowball at the end . . . so corny >.>;; The rest is brilliant.

  12. Francis's rating of the film Quai des Orfèvres

    Charming, but tired. Several steps below the 1947 American trifecta of Brute Force, The Lady from Shanghai, and Out of the Past. An incredible year for American noir.
