Critic Reviews for Manon
As a demonstration of human nature, we're afraid that this film Henri-Georges Clouzot has helped adapt and has directed fails to convey why a man would throw himself at the feet of an obviously no-good dame.
Even by 1949's standards, this odd-duck in the director's filmography may be a tempestuous love affair, but one marked savagely by the uncompromising fluctuations of power which crush survivors 'neath the weight of lofty ideals.
Clouzot's craftsmanship and style made an impression at the Venice Festival and it won Best Film in 1949.
A pointed and powerful metaphor for the futility of war and the damage it does to the human spirit -- and one of Clouzot's finest films.
