The Nazi German-controlled Continental Films sought to hire the best of the Occupied France film industry. Among those who accepted the offer was the young director, Henri-Georges Clouzot who went on to make the The Wages of Fear. Of the thirty films made by the company, Le Corbeau is regarded as the finest, and also as Clouzot’s first, very controversial masterpiece. The film gives full vent to the dark misanthropy of the times as it studies the effect of betrayal, suspicion and guilt on a village community living under the German Occupation.
Pierre Fresnay, Ginette Leclerc, Pierre Larquey, Micheline Francey
