I coincidentally bought the Criterion for the 40s challenge so it's on my watchtlist for this month. Will try to get to it this week.

Saw it today. In style a good example of the overlap between noir and poetic realism (the first own a lot to the later, so it's hard to make the distinction. Maybe someone more enlightened could do that.) In plot it's clearly a product of its production time and place; prejudices and gossip leading to mob rule being a clear allegory to French behavior during the occupation.
Michel Simon is very convincing in the lead, by first being a haughty outsider that falls for the femme fatale because of his secret loneliness and need for human contact.
I thought Paul Bernard looked like he was maked up like in a silent movie with his über pale face and big lipstick lips and felt out of place therefor in this movie. (not his performance fault to)
rating: 8.0

Love this one, and Michel Simon is fantastic as usual. I also gave it an 8/10.

I suppose I agree about Paul Bernard looking like he belongs in a silent film, although when I was actually watching it that didn't bother me at all. What did bother me was the occasionally discordant music in a couple of scenes.
