La vérité

Henri-Georges Clouzot France, 1960

P D Dawson's rating of the film The Truth

A compelling court room drama that tells its story through flashbacks. The story focuses on Dominique Marceau and her affair and obsession with a freshly graduated composer. Clouzot's direction is subtle throughout and shows viewpoint from each character, always highlighting human frailties, over judgement and condemnation, which makes it a fresh and exciting court room drama amplified by Bardot's alluring presence.
