      Five bored men got a gun and knocked out the groom who had mistakenly held a wedding in the church across from the balcony. The bride has been searching for the whereabouts of the five people for many years and embarked on a dark road of revenge.

      Plot confusion and emotional portrayal

      When I first read it, I was always puzzled:
      1. How could such a simple killing method really succeed again and again without leaving a trace? The first murder was when the victim pushed someone off a high-rise building while helping her fetch a silk scarf. I thought at the time that the distance between the silk scarf and the man did not seem to require the victim to risk flipping over the balcony railing, right? Of course, this may be a visual error, but if the man asked me to get a...

      Only in its shape but not in its spirit

      Chufu's tribute to Hitchcock. It's a pity that he had to have his form but not his spirit. The story happened, developed and ended in a natural way. The director showed the truth and explained it in an all-knowing and all-powerful way. So there is only a rough body of a genre film left in the movie, which at first glance seems like a big cut, but when you look closely, it is boneless. Even Jeanne Moreau became rigid and cramped, as if suddenly she could not act. The fiction and reality of...

      bride in black

          The translation of the name into "The Bride in Black" is more in place.

          Truffaut shot this film to pay tribute to Hitchcock, but he is not a suspense Producer after all. So it's just a suspense, the motive for the murder, that runs through. However, this tribute film has become a unique interest and is closely associated with Jeanne Moreau.

          The bride who lost the groom, implements a serial murder plan. (Like kindly gold, Nemesis) What's interesting is that...

      Reviewed the paragraph on the sound feeling guided by the friction of the cloth. If Rivett is somewhat spiritually close to Hitchcock in The Duel, Truffaut has always maintained a fascinated attitude, or rather, something else attracted him: Vertigo's vertigo, Psycho's In moments of terror, the iconic face of Jeanne Moreau. Among the new wave directors, Truffaut is the most able to absorb the energy of the genre, his films are always full of viewing, but the obsession with sensory-motion (from...

      The first (elevator to the gallows) and the last Jeanne Moreau. There are many loopholes in the stupid and cute French style, so let's just appreciate the series (Chu Fu has lost three souls). Drunken shadows revolve, I like the part of the painter and the bedside beauty the most. The polyphonic transposition wedding march + the death that is repeatedly zoomed in and amplified is deeply humorous, but not...

      The portrayal of a nemesis who is loyal to love and in pain is greater than the presentation of story and suspense. The only thing that surprises the audience is that the heroine had the opportunity to destroy the painting on the wall, but then gave up, and soon the audience knew that this was the springboard for her to enter the prison to complete the final blow. It can be seen as one of the inspirations for Kill...
