Les mains nettes

Claude Jutra Canada, 1958

VincentVendetta's rating of the film Washed Hands

Social film with B-movie aesthetics, but then again, Jutra's political cinema has always been more dramatic than Perrault's and Groulx's. One can already find his talent when the script's not around, as he sometimes exhibits clever noir-inspired directing; it's a shame he doesn't experiment more during the more traditional dialog scenes.
