  1. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    SIODMAK Noir 1 === Hitcockian, British, cerebral, enigmatic. Between two pretty twins, how to recognize the pure of the perverse? Pleasurable Mission accomplished by Robert SIODMAK. === Hitcockien, british, cérébral, énigmatique. Entre 2 jolies jumelles, comment reconnaître la pure de la perverse ? Mission accomplie pour Robert SIODMAK pour notre plaisir. Olivia de HAVILLAND (Gone with the Wind) at the top.

  2. Tibulle85's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    Un bonbon noir des années 40! Le film, très teinté de psychologie comme bcp de films de l'époque (La maison du Dr Edwardes, les films de Powell et Pressburger, etc.), n'est jamais très convaincant sur ce plan...On peut même dire que le scénario dans son ensemble est tout à fait absurde! Mais le film a un charme fou, notamment grâce à une performance impressionnante de son actrice principale. On lui pardonne dc bcp!

  3. Marc Saffar's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    Excellent thriller plus psychiatrique que psychanalytique qui permet à Olivia de Havilland le même genre de performance que Jouvet dans Copie conforme. On peut penser que de Palma a vu et aimé ce film.

  4. Ma-rewind's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    Bon, c'est un peu cliché, ça casse pas trois pattes à un canard... mais ça fait passer un bon moment! Et effectivement, en terme d'effets spéciaux, c'était une belle performance à l'époque!!

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    Remarquable film d'ambiance d'un Siodmak rarement décevant... www.cinefiches.com

  6. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

  7. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    3,5/ Un bon film, solide du toujours intéressant Siodmak. Une belle performance d'effets spéciaux assez discrets. Plutôt qu'Olivia de Havilland, un panda aurait fait l'affaire... sans FX rien ne ressemble plus à un panda, qu'un autre panda...)

  8. LauraPalmer's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    Maybe The Dark Mirror inspired Sisters (Brian de Palma, 1973)

  9. Dogville59's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    I love film noire and this film did not disappoint. It was a lot of fun. Great acting and camera and lighting work.

  11. Batraptor's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    "Not even nature can duplicate character, not even in twins." Though it has it's trouble with 40s psychology (lie detectors don't actually work, the Rorschach test is dubious at best) and woman-view (women are not natural competitors, but they are societally influenced to judge each other), it is nonetheless a fascinating film with some good tension and an amazing performance from the leading lady.

  13. Annie Gentil-Kraatz's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    Amazing special effects for the time and great plot. Scary how your closest relative can be your worst enemy...

  14. AugusteB's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

  15. Diego Carrera's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    Great little Siodmak film with a two times sensational Olivia and a very well written script. That climax is electrifying!

  16. Jyoti's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    I tuned out when one of the (male) characters started talking about how "natural" it is for women to compete with one another.

  17. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    interesante ejercicio de ambigüedad que se disuelve en el tiempo

  18. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Dark Mirror

    Terry or Ruth Collins ? Twin sisters facing the psychologist Dr. Scott Elliott. Great special effects, one of Olivia de Havilland’s best performances. Masterpiece.
