5.0 out of 5 stars You can't go wrong, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LA POISON [POISON] (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) [1951] (Blu-ray)
If you like witty off-beat character-driven films, you will love La Poison. It is also one of those uncommon movies that can be enjoyed as light entertainment and yet rewards deeper thinking about the many issues it presents. The movie especially invites me to question: has mass media destroyed communitarianism? has law and justice destroyed ethics and morality?

The included documentary explains that the movie was filmed essentially like a live play, which explains some of its impressive power and immediacy, and is a tribute to the masterful planning of Sacha Guitry, the director, and Michel Simon, the amazing lead actor.

You can't go wrong with Eureka's Masters of Cinema collection. The transfers are the best, the discs load instantly (unlike Criterion, for instance), the menus are beautifully simple and direct, and the extras included are always essential.
