I remember watching this film when i was about 9 years old. today i'm 24 years old, and i still can remember all the film because it made my skin goose bumps. As a horror films fan i can tell you this is the best one i've ever seen because of two major things:
1. Some elements in this story can definitly occur in the real life. just watch it till the end, and you'll understand why i say it.
2. Everything in this film is calculated to the last detail, and the actors give the audience a very good and realistic play.
If you won't see this film i'll tell you just this: YOU WON'T EVER KNOW WHAT IS FEAR AFTER A GOOD THRILLER !
Prepare a big pot with popcorn before this one :)

I had never even heard of this movie until this morning, when I was creating a list of Amazon Instant Videos that I might watch at some future date. When I came across this "Dominique" with Jean Simmons and Cliff Robertson (both of whom, in my opinion are at the top of their game as actors), I decided to watch it right then. This movie had me on the edge of my seat trying to figure things out until the very end. What a great find, I'm looking forward to watching it again in a couple of years. Great script and superb acting!

We rented this film on a DVD of three old, scary movies. One was a classic ultra-low-budget that I already knew, 'Carnival of Souls', but I had never heard of the other two, and I wasn't expecting much. 'Dominique' exceeded my expectations. This film is well-acted, with very effective visuals done without special effects, and I found it enjoyably creepy with a number of really scary moments.

Veteran actress Jean Simmons in the title role is moving as the disabled, despairing, but still dignified wife of a husband she has come to mistrust. Her later appearances (the word is related to 'apparition') are well-staged and frightening, with no aspect scarier than her expression, inhumanly passive yet somehow determined toward some unuttered goal.

The house is not your customary scary-movie Gothic mansion, but is more of an expansive Italian villa, and the visuals of its wide-open, columned interior spaces gave me an unsettling sense of my own exposure. The camera work is creative and often beautiful: Note the very last scene. Music is used sparingly, its tasteful absence heightening the sense of aloneness as a frightened Mr. Ballard wanders the darkened house. I found many things to like in this obscure B-grade film.

Just a note: Jean Simmons and Flora Robson had appeared together thirty years earlier in the Archers' classic, 'Black Narcissus'.

An enjoyable mystery movie that's worth a watch, especially if you have Amazon Prime and can stream it for free. The acting is at times sub-par, and the plot somewhat predictable, but this movie manages to keep your attention all the way until the end. I had low expectations since many Prime "Horror" movies are pretty bad, but this movie managed to exceed my expectations. (By the way, this is more of a mystery than a horror movie, so if you're expecting gore you'll be disappointed.)

I have not seen Dominique in years... watching it again after years of no see I find the movie extremely good. If you want a fast-paced, bloody ghost story then this film is not for you. This film is what you might call 'slow' and written well instead of 'fast' and all bloody eye-candy with no solid story. Dominique is my kind of a ghost story - just a damned good story with quality acting.

The story is exactly like the plot summery. Basically, a money-hungry husband and the 'ghost' of a vengeful wife. There is more to this story but I will not tell it because it would ruin the film for those who have not seen it yet. It's a must watch for lovers of older ghost stories.

I remembered the film to be good - but it is so much better than I recalled it to be. This might be a 'boring' ghost story for some - for others, like myself, this is a quality haunting film.

8.5/10

Good, old fashioned thriller with an interesting twist. Stars Cliff Robertson and Jean Simmons.

David and Dominique are a wealthy couple living in England. Dominique suffers from depression and takes her own life.

Most of the wealth belongs to Dominique. David's investments business is in financial trouble. Was David responsible for his wife's suicide? Relatives, friends, and business partners all have reasons for needing the money.

Highly recommended.

Superior British film focusing on the supoernatural...or so we are led to believe! Fine performances by Jean Simmons and Cliff Robertson. The
performance by Robertson goes against type and is an interesting one to revel in. Intrifuing direction by Michael Anderson and English scenery
which sets the appropriate background to accomodate the film's mysterious overtones as one trys to figure out what actually is happening.

This was one of the first horror/mystery movies I have ever seen and I wonder why it seems that noone else has seen it. If you get the chance to watch it, don't hesitate, it's not a milestone but it is well worth seeing it. Sometimes it gets REALLY scary, but the problem is that there are too much repenting sequences. But don't bother, any of you mystery fans out there should see it!
