Set in an old German castle where an elderly paterfamilias lies on his deathbed, this gripping murder mystery by director Julien Duvivier has a veneer of the supernatural about it. As the heirs to the dying man's estate come together at the castle, a woman among them stands out for her heritage. It so happens that an ancestor of the dying man betrayed one of her long-dead female relatives, and after the old man finally dies, the woman starts having strange visions. At the same time, it begins to look like the old man did not die a natural death, but was in fact, murdered.

4 of 5 A skilled film director enjoying himself. July 5, 2014
Reviewer: Justin McCann from Staten Island, NY United States  
It was a pleasure to see this relatively conventional upper class murder mystery directed in such a sophisticated and amusing manner. Duvivier was a genuinely skilled master of his craft and to simply sit back and enjoy the way he would set up each and every scene was a delight.
