La vérité

Henri-Georges Clouzot France, 1960

Zac Weber's rating of the film The Truth

A poignant and emotionally complex film. Bardot and Sami Frey are outstanding, and the audience intimately experiences the defendant's frustration in court. However, Clouzot frames the film so we are focused on the tragedy of Dominique's life more so than her legal fate. One of Bardot's best performances.
