Diabolique

Top 10 French Movies

Simone Signoret and Vera Clouzot, the two delicious 'devils' of Henri-Georges Clouzot's timeless thriller Diabolique

Diabolique (1955)

Henri-Georges Clouzot's black-and-white thriller is often compared to Hitchcock's work. Starring Simone Signoret, his wife Véra Clouzot and Paul Meurisse, it blends horror and thriller attributes, focusing on how an abusive man's wife and mistress team up to murder him. It is no wonder that "Diabolique," with its unanticipated twist at the end, is now considered a cinematic classic, even inspiring an American remake that failed to captivate like the original.
