"Last night...you would be furious, but you would have done the same thing."
29 July 2017 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Melina Mercouri plays the unhappily married wife of a cheating Englishman who, while cooped up in an overbooked hotel in a Spanish village with her husband, their child and the husband's mistress, spies someone hiding on a rooftop--the man all the police are searching for, one who has committed double murder, a crime of passion. Adaptation of Marguerite Duras' novel "Dix heures et demie du soir en été" ("Ten-Thirty on a Summer Night"), by Duras and director-producer Jules Dassin, is full of tangled emotions, conflicted desires, crazy behavior (with Mercouri as the jilted wife, how could you not have crazy behavior?). Dassin has movie-making fever, and he pulls a few visual surprises (including a startling point-of-view shot as Melina walks through the crowded hotel at night). Still, these people and their romantic predicament fail to be very interesting. Far more successful is Mercouri's maternal feelings for the murderer--not a major part of the plot, but the moment in the movie when the emotions on-screen really take hold. The haunting finale is memorable as well. **1/2 from ****
