Diabolique

Double Feature with DOUBLE INDEMNITY (7:00)

1955 • dir Henri-Georges Clouzot w/Simone Signoret, Véra Clouzot, Paul Meurisse • 117 min • 35mm

In this classic film, unquestionably one of the greatest and most surprising thrillers of all time, an abusive man’s mistress (Signoret) enlists the help of his wife (Clouzot) to do away with him. For the uninitiated, to tell more about the plot would be to do a disservice… Trust us, if you are a mystery fan and you have never seen this film, you want to come in as uninformed as possible.

Staff Pick! Michael: “Based upon the novel She Who Was No More by the dynamic french writing team Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac is a story about how every action done can not be undone, and actions of the past could potentially follow one wherever they go—and they must carry on in life refusing to mention what they saw.”

“This is a masterpiece that easily matches the best of Hitchcock.”
– Tom Hutchinson, Radio Times

“Satisfying, elegant and nasty.”
– Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“A great piece of Guignol misanthropy.”
