This film, which hasn't aged a DAY, except for locations, cars, etc., I never tire of watching. I first saw it at TEN and was scared out of my mind! I've had the VERY cheap VHS dubbed version for years, and while that is VERY GOOD, this DVD is FANTASTIC! Clear picture, and I had NO trouble at all with the subtitles! SUCH a TREAT to hear the ORIGINAL soundtrack, as it adds so much more. Too many times in dubbed versions, words are taken as literal, when they are not! Like when Signoret says "Have fun children" clearly showing her disgust, in the dubbed version it was "Have fun kiddies."This film NEVER lets up! I was reading Simone Signoret's book, one of many, the other day. She said the filming was grueling, and was called because Clouzot wanted his wife to work with friends! I would be diabolical myself if I told you much of the plot, as it has been repeated here for you too see! No extras on the DVD, like even the original trailer, but still a DVD for your library. Simone Signoret was a true beauty and a GREAT actress; we don't get too many of those, nor directors of this clout! In fact, Clouzot started the "no admission after the film starts" which was attributed to Hitchcock's PSYCHO. BOTH films are masterpieces, however this one is overlooked, probably because it is foreign, or because the unbelieveably cheap VHS dubbed copies are SO bad. You cannot go wrong with this AT ALL!
