Francois Truffaut pays marvelous tribute to Alfred Hitchcock with this thriller. is excellent as a vengeful wife whose intention it is to kill the entire group of men responsible for the murder of her husband on her wedding day. One by one she ingratiates herself into their lives, carefully cornering them until she can do away with each one and get away clean. When the law starts to catch up to her, she manages to still have a bigger plan in mind than you ever expected. Great music by Hitchcock’s favourite composer Bernard Herrmann and a brilliant screenplay taken from a novel by Cornell Woolrich make for a great thriller.
