An interesting film, with a following of admirers; this François Truffaut film is full of strange twists that holds interest- film noir crossed with romance/mystery. Ultimately, the film is not satisfying as the love story is very difficult to accept. But be warned - this has not been remastered, and even though it bears the MGM logo, it is not an MGM film, and it should not have been released in this state - quality is no better than a VHS tape; in fact it looked like a pirate copy on my high end equipment. Image is neither sharp nor with sufficient contrast; colors are washed out. A sad state of affairs for MGM DVD - when compared to Warner Bros DVD MGM films in the unrestored Archive series.
