Deception's Master: Two by Clouzot

Synopsis

A mysterious writer of poison-pen letters plagues a French provincial town, unwittingly exposing the collective suspicion and rancor seething beneath the community’s calm surface.

Our take

Today we celebrate Henri-Georges Clouzot’s birthday with his sophomore masterpiece, Le corbeau. Going so far as working with a German studio in occupied France, Clouzot deceptively slipped social critique into this tale of small town duplicity. A dark yet essential exposé of the French bourgeois.
