Le roman d'un tricheur

Sacha Guitry France, 1936

StellaWasaDiver's rating of the film The Story of a Cheat

Proto-New Wave, with narrated credits, incorporated stock footage, and some unconventional camera work. The lone-voice narration took some getting used to, but I don't think I'd have enjoyed the film much otherwise. It kinda felt like a silent film, watching the actors do their thing without actually hearing them. Favorite Guitry film so far.
