Just in time for Noirvember, we have this exceptional French Noir-thriller that would make Hitchcock proud (he did try to secure the rights to the novel at one point, reportedly losing out to Clouzot by only a matter of hours).
The wife of a sadistic headmaster teams up with his mistress to murder him and they seemingly pull it off only to have the body mysteriously disappear which understandably makes his killers nervous.
With suspense and twists at every turn, this movie is a must-see! However, avoid the 1996 remake with Sharon Stone at all costs.
