Manon

Manon

Movie: Manon
Director: Henri-Georges Clouzot
Produced by: Corona Films
Released By: Corona Films
MPAA Rating:

Updated from Abbe Prevost’s Manon Lescaut, this non-operatic version of the familiar tale stars Cecile Aubrey in the title role. Accused of collaborating with the Nazis during WW II, Manon Lescaut is rescued by Robert Desgrieux. Safely ensconced in Paris with Robert, Manon falls victim to the machinations of her dishonest brother Leon. Once more Robert comes to her rescue then takes his love with him to Palestine. Director Henri-Georges Clouzot departs most radically from the Prevost original in the closing scenes, which concentrate on a group of Jewish war refugees. Obviously under the influence of American film noir, Clouzot takes great delight in concentrating on society’s castaways in Manon.
