HEN a haunting tale about sacrifice and betrayal, 27.09.2022 23:07
Don't let the fact that this film is nearly 70 years old prevent you from watching. The story, although economically told with a small cast, is still a very modern tale about how one bad decision - made with the best intentions - manages to haunt a young couple to the point of near homicide. Beautifully acted, filled with wrenching scenes of great emotion, this story isn't interested in creating villains, but rather in finding a very human middle ground where trust can grow. And the bittersweet ending is one of the finest and most satisfying conclusions l have ever seen in film.

The film quality is good and crisp. At only a few brief moments does the audio fade a bit, but the clean and easy-to-follow subtitles more than compensate. A fine transfer and another terrific film option from the folks at RFAM!
