Movie Reviews

Modern retelling of a classic tale
Arnold Cusmariu | 03/28/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Loose adaptation of the famous Zola novel that has been made into movies quite a few times before this version and after, as well as stage plays. Simone Signoret, looking radiant, is in the title role and Raf Vallone is her lover Laurent. The chemistry between the two stars is real and makes this movie worth watching. Vallone speaks French with an accent and it was a wise decision by the director (the legendary Marcel Carne, who also made "Children of Paradise") not to dub him. Signoret's patrician icy coolness became something of a trademark that set a tone beautiful French stars after her have followed, e.g., Catherine Deneuve and Carole Bouquet. Beauty must be calm, says Baudelaire in a famous poem. Indeed.

The Zola novel, of course, is much better. If this movie gets people reading the book, so much the better."
