Marie-Octobre (1959)

Fifteen years after WWII, a group of ex-resistance fighters are brought together by Marie-Octobre, so that the former members of the network can finally relive one fateful night and find out who betrayed their murdered leader.

Old-fashioned, Agatha Christie-style whodunnit, stagebound and talkative, but well-staged and entertaining nevertheless.

Halliwell (no star): "Stultifying one-set talkfest employing Hitchcock's long-discarded ten-minute take."
