Or the strange Monsieur Grémillon... Though unquestionably a major film-maker, Grémillon - also an accomplished musician, painter and documentarist - has remained a marginal figure even in his native land, a French Humphrey Jennings, perhaps. In this bleak study of malevolence, an example of his painterly rather than poetic realism, Raimu plays (magnificently) a modest clerk whose mousy respectability conceals the psychology of a monster.
