4.0 von 5 Sternen Another winner from Clouzot 15. November 2004
Von Trevor Willsmer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verifizierter Kauf
Quai des Orfevres takes too long getting going, with Clouzot so enamored of his back-stage milieu that he is almost in danger of forgetting the story. However, once it does, it's Clouzot at his best. Bertrand Blier (father of Bertrand Blier and co-star of his Buffet Froid) is the worldworn pianist who married beneath himself and who plans to kill the seedy studio mogul with designs on his wife only to find that someone has beaten him to it. Not only that, but his carefully planned but clumsily executed alibi falls to pieces, not least when a thief steals his car at the murder scene...

The film really kicks into life with the arrival of Luis Jouvet's police inspector, a rather wonderful creation half Alistair Sim in Green for Danger and half world-weary Maigret with better dialog. In a neat running gag, his investigation is constantly conducted at the top of his voice against chaos and noise, whether it be the noisy typewriters of the police station or a loud rehearsal. The police station itself is a wonderfully realistic creation, a wealth of chaotic and telling small details that makes Steve Bocchco's once revolutionary 80's US cop shows look like antiquated museum pieces by comparison.

If Suzy Delair is a rather unconvincing femme fatale, the supporting cast more than compensate, with the beautiful Simone Renant a standout as the lesbian photographer in love with her from afar and constantly mistaken for Blier's lover by Delair and other interested parties (only Jouvet, similarly unlucky with women, understands and genuinely sympathises). With great black and white photography by Armand Thirard, this is a terrific little thriller with a nice twist ending and a lovely scene with a cab driver reluctantly identifying Renant in a police station. (Trivia note: Pierre Larquey, who played the playfully philosophical Dr Vorzet in Le Corbeau, turns up in smaller roles as a cab-driver in both Quai and Les Espions.)

The Criterion DVD is quite superb - great picture quality plus an illuminating extract from a French TV show featuring interviews with Clouzot, Blier and Renant.

Suspense at it's best. Beautiful 'theater-like' sets. Topped by fabulous actors, especially enigmatic Louis Jouvet, as detective.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A marvelous, amusing movie about murder, jealousy, music halls and love, with enough raisins even for Hitchcock 28. Oktober 2006
Von C. O. DeRiemer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Is it a murder mystery? Is it a police procedural? Is it a back-stage look at seedy French music halls? Quai des Orfevres is all of these, but more than anything else it's an amusing comedy of infidelity, jealousy and love, set in post-WWII Paris. It may be surprising that Henri-Georges Clouzot, the director of such grim films as Le Corbeau or such suspenseful nail-biters as Diabolique and The Wages of Fear, is the director of this one. Clouzot, however, was a shrewd film-maker. "In a murder mystery," he tells us, 'there's an element of playfulness. It's never totally realistic. In this I share Hitchcock's view, which says, 'A murder mystery is a slice of cake with raisins and candied fruit, and if you deny yourself this, you might as well film a documentary.'" Quai des Orfevres is a wonderful film, and it's no documentary.

Jenny Martineau (Suzy Delair) is an ambitious singer at music halls and supper clubs. She's a flirt, she's sees nothing too wrong with using a bit of sex as well as talent to get a contract. Her stage name is Jenny Latour. And she really loves her husband, Maurice Martineau (Bernard Blier). Martineau is something of a sad sack. He's her accompanist and arranger. He's a bit balding, a bit chubby and jealous to a fault. Then we have their neighbor, the photographer Dora Monnier (Simone Renant). She's blond, gorgeous (think of Rita Hayworth) and capable. She and Martineau have been friends since they were children together. Dora, however, is definitely not thinking just of friendship when she looks at Jenny. Then comes along Georges Brignon (Charles Dullin), a wizened, rich and dirty old man, who often has Dora take "art" photographs of his young female proteges whom he poses himself. He offers a contract for a film to Jenny, and suggests a dinner at his home to discuss the details. Jenny is more than willing. Maurice is furious and forbids it. Jenny shouts right back at him, "You're jealous of the rich! Well, I want my share of their dough. I'm all for royalty!" "You're dad was a laborer," Maurice shouts back. "So what? Under Louis XV, I'd have been Madame de Pompadour! I'd have heated up their tights!"

And after Brignon is found dead with a smashed champagne bottle next to his bleeding skull, there's Dora to try to make things safe for Jenny. But wait. Inspector Antoine gets the case. Antoine (Louis Jouvet) is a tall, tired, middle-aged bachelor with sore feet. He has seen it all. He served in "the colonies" with the Foreign Legion and returned with an adopted baby and malaria. The child is now about eight-years old and Antoine dotes on him. One of the first things Antoine discovers is not only did someone brain Brignon with a bottle, someone shot him in the heart. Who did it? Before long Jenny, Maurice and Dora all are making up alibis, lying and, at one or another point, confessing. How will Antoine discover the murderer? Will we have a chance to see some great music hall songs sung by Jenny Latour? Everything becomes clear, but only with time and Detective Antoine's persistence. We are left with many kinds of love leading to all kinds of motives, from hair-trigger jealousy to longing glances...and all played with a nice mixture of Gallic amusement.

Clouzot takes us to a Paris of seedy but not threatening neighborhoods, to downtrodden music publishers where tunes are played on the piano for buyers, to restaurants with discrete private dining rooms. Most of all, he takes us to the music hall where Jenny Latour often performs. We can see Jenny as she sings, with couples in the seats and single men wearing their coats and hats in standing room. And everyone smokes. The first third of the film, in fact, takes place largely in this milieu. With Jenny singing about "Her petite tra-la-la, her sweet tra-la-la," we follow her from trying out the song at the publishers to a rehearsal to a saucy performance with Jenny in a feathered hat, a corset, gartered stockings and not much else.

Delair, Blier and Renant all do wonderful jobs, but it Louis Jouvet who holds everything together. He was a marvelous actor who disliked making films. The stage was his world, and he took on films only if he happened to like the director and to make money to finance his stage work. Jouvet was tall with a long face and broad cheekbones. He was not conventionally handsome but he had what it takes to dominate a scene. For a look at how skillfully he could play comedy, watch him in Drole de Drame. He's a fascinating actor. At one point he says, "I've taken a liking to you, Miss Dora Monnier." "Me?" she asks. "Yes. Because you and I are two of a kind. When it comes to women, we'll never have a chance." Jouvet brings all kinds of nuances to that line, from rueful regret to a gentle amusement.

The Criterion release of Quai des Orfevres has an excellent black-and-white transfer, with deep blacks and rich grays. There is a short interview with Clouzot and another interview with Blier, Renant and Delair. The case holds a fold-out which gives film details and a solid essay about the film. Most importantly, on the other side it gives us a full-length photo of Jenny in her small and effective costume.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The low life 3. Februar 2008
Von Jay Dickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Henri-Georges Clouzot's 1948 police procedural, also exhibited under the title JENNY LAMOUR, is a beautifully constructed look into the lives of the lower depths of Paris just after the war, where millionaires go slumming and rub elbows with pornographers, petty thieves, and vaudeville performers. As with his later LES DIABOLIQUES, Clouzot focuses mainly on an odd little ménage á troi: Jenny Lamour (the astonishingly carnal Suzy Delair), a music-hall songstress and femme fatale; her nebbishy husband and accompanist Maurice Martineau (Bernard Blier, looking like Bob Newhart); and Dora Monier (Simone Renant), their photographer friend who dabbles in pornography and who yearns for Jenny (but sleeps with Maurice). All three of them one night secretly visit the crime scene of a murder of the loathsome elderly capitalist (Charles Dullin) who makes advances towards Jenny: the film shows you how they attempt to cover their tracks, and then how a seedy gumshoe on the Paris police force (Louis Jouvet) undoes all their work. You wind up rooting for the trio. despite their bad behaviors towards one another, because the murdered man was so despicable, yet you also understand the detective's impassioned defense of police work, even though the Paris police here abuse their suspects' civil rights and employ all kinds of questionable tactics.

A film like this depends wholly on its director and its actors, and in this regard it could not be better. Clouzot has often been compared to Hitchcock for his dark view of human relations, his interest in generating extreme suspense, and his poor treatment of his actors (though like Hitchcock he often prompted amazing performances from them). Although all four principals are terrific, it's as hard to keep your eyes off of Clouzot's Jenny, Suzy Delair, as it is for everyone around her character in the film. The French dialogue is admirably tough and coarse, which enhances the naturalistic sense of probing the Parisian lower depths.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A perfect film? 1. August 2006
Von Noirist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This work presents arguably the greatest ambiguity ever filmed.

The plot revolves around a murder but everything else is ambiguous to the viewer and even to the characters in the movie until the very end. Who killed the victim? Who will be charged with the crime? Who believes that they themself killed the victim? Who is believed by who to have killed the victim? And what does the viewer believe about all this? The answers to these questions change scene by scene, with the one constant being that these questions never have the same answer until the end of the movie.

The movie's style is equally ambiguous... Is it a noir where the sins of the lead characters appear certain to bring about their fall? Or is it a classic detective story where the relentless investigator traps the perpretator in their own lies? Is it a story of love? And if so, between who? Or one of jealousy? Ultimately it ends up as a love story because it is the many overlapping bonds of love that propel the plot, define the characters, and bring this movie to its spectacular conclusion.

So if you love noir, you MUST see this film. It is the only movie you will ever see where a single scene late in the movie changes the entire previous movie from a noir to a love story.
