La Vérité

The Truth

Clouzot’s corrosive portrait of ‘liberated’ life on the Left Bank in postwar Paris boasts Bardot’s best performance.

Brigitte Bardot gives her finest performance as Dominique, a young woman who flees a suffocatingly strict provincial home for the liberated late-50s lifestyle of Paris’ artsy Left Bank. Structured as an investigation into the events that led to Dominique’s trial for murder, the recently restored film is – characteristically for Clouzot – a cool, beady-eyed dissection of overheated passions, callous cruelty and moral confusion.
