Le Feu Follet

Director: Louis Malle

France, 1963

Run Time: 108 minutes, Certificate: 12,
Genre: Drama, Language: French


Louis Malle's updated film version of the influential 1931 novel by Drieu La Rochelle became a detached, almost scientific study of a man's despair as he looks for a reason to continue living. Maurice Ronet contributed a performance of chilling veracity, avoiding any suggestion of sentimentality, as the former alcoholic refusing to settle down.

Average score 5
