Henri-Georges Clouzot’s movies re-issued on dvd and Blu Ray

LE CORBEAULE CORBEAU (PG) 1943 FRANCE   HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT £17.99 

First French film noir made in German occupied France which ensured a storm of controversy and it was attacked by the right-wing Vichy regime, the left-wing Resistance press and the Catholic Church.

The film is set in the small provincial St Robin, where a series of poison-pen letters signed ‘Le Corbeau’ appear to denounce several prominent members of the town. The dark side of St Robin is revealed, with the townspeople afraid to accuse each other for fear of being accused themselves, as suspicion and hatred becomes the norm.
