another dark movie by Jean Delannoy
25 November 2014 | by happytrigger-64-390517See all my reviews

From Jean Delannoy, I recently rediscovered 'Les Jeux Sont Faits", a hidden noir romantic and fantastic treasure I saw forty years ago when I was a kid, a story absolutely impossible to forget (and still not available on DVD, what a sad mystery). Written by Jean-Paul Sartre, cinematography by the great Christian Matras.

And I searched in Delannoy's filmography for more noirish tales, and I found "Les Amitiés Particulières" : another story absolutely impossible to forget (from the novel by Roger Peyrefitte adapted by Jean Aurenche and Pierre Bost, cinematography by Christian Matras).

And I finally found this mortal "Le Rendez-vous", with a very touching Annie Girardot in a family story again impossible to forget. Sometimes, I thought I was watching a Delannoy's Maigret, this very rich family dealing with too much dark problems. Robert Juillard's cinematography (who worked with great directors like Roberto Rossellini and René Clément as well as the popular Raoul André) is very atmospheric and accurate. The adaptation of Patick Quentin's "The Man With Two Wives" (released in France as "La Vérité Du Mensonge") by Jean Aurenche et Pierre Bost is powerful. And the casting : a touching Annie Girardot, a threatening Jean-François Poron, a nervous George Sanders (speaking french marvelously) a shy but brilliant policeman Philippe Noiret, and many others. Highly recommended.

I haven't seen yet "Le Garçon Sauvage" directed by Jean Delannoy in 1951, sadly unavailable. It seems to be another great surprise by Jean Delannoy.
