Director: Henri-Georges Clouzot
Starring: Simone Signoret, Paul Meurisse
The abused wife and mistress of the tyrannical headmaster of a seedy boys' boarding school conspire to put an end to his callous brutality.
Taut as a mantrap, the meticulous script provides plenty of tension, surprises and shocks, but what really distinguishes the film is Clouzot's beady eye for details, both atmospheric and telling: a swimming pool clogged with debris, rancid school meals, and the dismal efforts of the staff to curry favour.
