Truffaut’s adaptation of Cornell Woolrich’s Waltz Into Darkness has a wealthy but lonely businessman (Belmondo) advertise for a wife, only to have a woman (Deneuve) arrive from France noticeably more glamorous than the one in the photo he received. It’s the first of many surprises, mysteries, twists and turns in a sumptuous, emotionally sadomasochistic tale of betrayal, revenge and erotic obsession.
