France | 1960 | dir. Henri-Georges Clouzot, with Charles Vanel, Brigitte Bardot, Sami Frey, Marie-Jose Nat | new print

Dominique Marceau (Brigitte Bardot) is on trial for the murder of her lover Gilbert Tellier (Sami Frey). As the hearings go on, the accused’s true character comes to light. In this feature, winner of the 1961 Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film, Henri-Georges Clouzot depicts a puritanical and hypocritical society that shows no compassion for the monsters it creates. The result is a film of remarkable precision and ruthless irony in which Brigitte Bardot gives the performance of a lifetime.
