See this masterpiece by French Director Henri-Georges Clouzot at Cinema Reborn.
Nazi-controlled Continental Films sought to hire the best of the Occupied French film industry. Among those who accepted the offer was the young director, Henri-Georges Clouzot. Of the thirty films made by the company, Clouzot’s first, Le Corbeau is regarded as its finest, though controversial, masterpiece. The film gives full expression to the dark misanthropy that would be a hallmark of the director’s career.
“[A] starkly realist portrayal of a small provincial community…the most vivid and corrosive picture of Nazi-controlled France.”
