This movie is simply sublime poetry !,
This review is from: Les Visiteurs Du Soir (The Devil's Envoys) [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The script involves us in the XV Century when the devil forces will fight hardly to imposse its will .
But the crude analogy is subreptitiously suggested by Marcel Carne and Jacques Prevert to create one of the most outstanding and terrible metaphores ever made.
Both lovers will maintain their decision till the end . And the crude and arresting images when they are turned to stone , it is easy for us to know which was the emmisare of the Satanic Majestic during the Nazi Occupation in France.
A timeless movie and one of the most pyramidal French films in any age .
If not for the Children of the Paradise , this would be the absolute masterpiece of Marcel Carne.
