Submarine travelReviewed byAAdaSCVote: 7/10

A group of Nazi sympathizers of various nationalities board a submarine at Oslo on a secret mission to land in South America where it is planned that Hitler and the Third Reich will rise up once again. On navigating the English Channel, one of the party gets injured – Florence Marly (Mdm Garosi). She needs a doctor and it's the one thing that has been overlooked on this journey. So, they stop over in France and kidnap one – Henri Vidal (Guilbert). They resume their journey with the new arrival who realizes that his life is in danger as he now knows too much – he has to survive by making himself indispensable to the gang.

The whole story is pretty much set aboard the submarine. It's a novel setting and provides the necessary claustrophobic atmosphere as we wonder how and when our doctor hero is going to make his escape. Other characters don't fare too well when deciding to break free from the clutches of evil Jo Dest (Forster). By the way, this Dest character is a cartoon character Nazi who has a blatant homosexual arrangement with his young muscleman as played by Michel Auclair (Willy). Dest's male bitch is even given the name 'Willy' so that you are under no doubt that they like playing with each other's willies.

They all lived in a narrow submarine.Reviewed bydbdumonteilVote: 10/10

Among all René Clément 's movies dealing with WW2 ("jeux interdits" "la père tranquille" "Paris br?le-t-il?" ...) "les maudits" is simply the best.It might possibly be also Clement's best and I hope many comments will join mine soon.

Nazis are escaping from Germany in 1945 now that the writing's on the wall.They will cross the sea in a submarine and take refuge in South America .Among them ,a general , a manufacturer and his wife (who's the general's lover),a scientist and his daughter,a French collaborator,a "Dritte Reich " die-hard and his minion .The woman is injured and they have no doctor.So,in Royan,they kidnap Guilbert who will be forced to share their desperate odyssey.

Never maybe René Clément's direction has been so impressive:he uses with stunning results the enclosed atmosphere ,where the characters are prisoners:the audience like them is panting for breath.When the doctor enters the place ,the cinematography suggests a descent into hell.

This submarine is really Hell's anteroom.Heightened sensibilities ,suppressed hatred,and reciprocal contempt show because of an unbearable lack of privacy .Guilbert ,the doctor (Vidal) understands that ,because he's not one of "them" ,his days are numbered ,and he's got to play cat and mouse to survive.So strong is the supporting cast that they overshadow the hero (Henri Vidal was a limited actor though).The strange homosexual couple ,Himmler's former henchman (Jo Dest) and his lover (Michel Auclair who gives the most fascinating performance of the whole movie;René Clément met him when he filmed "la Belle et le Bete" with Cocteau ,Auclair played la Belle's brother)are much more than secondary characters.It even includes SM (the nazi whips his minion).

When we leave the submarine-coffin,all we find is the dark waters of an empty sea.And when we call at a harbor in South Africa,we find ourselves in Marcel Dalio's (who was part of "Casablanca" supporting cast!)office,the Venitian blinds of which are carefully lowered;or -in a scene so strong that it rivals the best of Hitchcock-,in the darkness of a coffee warehouse.

This is a must-see movie,which was also remarkable for another reason:everyone speaks his language ,which was not that much obvious at the time,and it adds another suspenseful plus:the hero must not show he understands German.

Henri Jeanson whose sense of humor is intact despite this thoroughly desperate noir story wrote astounding lines:"it looks like Noah's Ark,says the general at the beginning of the film,now all we need is the deluge".

He will not be disappointed.You will not either if you try this Clément overlooked gem.

"Their papers are good but their identities are false".Reviewed bybrogmillerVote: 7/10

This is director René Clément's third full-length film and already we are aware that he is a great 'film technician' with an eye for detail.

It takes place in a German U-471, a wooden replica of which Clément had built at the Victorine studios. His production designer, Paul Bertrand, has done a wonderful job in recreating the interior and the tracking shots through the vessel by Henri Alekan are impressive. Apparently Clément installed a tilting mechanism to reproduce as much as possible the movements of the submarine.

Essentially dealing with the wages of political sin, the characters almost without exception are a thoroughly unsavoury and ignoble bunch with no redeeming features which naturally makes them horribly fascinating. The doctor who is brought on board at gunpoint to aid one of the passengers is played by Henri Vidal. His character is decent and therefore infinitely less interesting! I have no doubt that Paul Bernard, Jo Dest and Florence Marly enjoyed their roles immensely. Marcel Dalio gets top billing here and plays 'une crapule' with his usual aplomb.

The film is not without its weaknesses. The punch-ups on board are far from convincing and the various deaths of the protagonists are handled in a very cold, clinical manner.

Clément's powerful first feature 'La Bataille du Rail' was filmed in a semi-documentary style whilst this one seems to fall between two stools, those of fact and fiction, with varying results.

This director made fifteen films in twenty-five years a few of which are undisputed masterpieces. 'Les Maudits' is alas not one of them but still very watchable. It did in fact beat off some pretty stiff competition to win Best Film at Cannes. Devotees of 'Psycho' please note the scene where a murdered man pulls down the curtain rail from the rod!
