Pleins feux sur l'assassin

Georges Franju France, 1961

SpacePirate's rating of the film Spotlight on a Murderer

The Arrow blu ray is exceptional and its transfer Criterion level. While this is no Eyes Without A Face, it is a decidedly French take on a Christie type murder mystery which I found to be beautifully done. Feels very much like And Then There Were None at times, and really the acting and pacing of the film is just right throughout. Extra star added for the beautiful Gaumont restoration used on the blu ray
