An underrated noir drama
8 October 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

No, folks, that story is not really a crime one. It would be rather a simple drama shot nearly in a single set - a bank - and giving us a sort of characters study with also a little suspense. The portrait of the poor bank clerk at whom every one laughs at is pretty interesting to follow. Many among the audiences could recognize himself in this guy, shy and uncomfortable in his own skin. I only the presence of this unbeareable music, that we unfortunately hear in those early fifties TV shows. Live shows, I guess. I also would like to insist on some good camera movements, sorts of long shots made in continuity, rear and forward, and also a split screen, almost, actually. Worth watching.
