A near masterpiece almost forgotten for the past, this french movie made by still obscure to me Jacques Tourner's father, an astonishing dark tale about devil's endless agreements with some people end up with a untalented painter who try everything to pay the Devil without success, told by flashback with utmost wealth of details since the beginning, when you realize this sorrowful Devil's prey there is no future come out an unexpected final, striing example how make a great movie on a tight budge,supported by a perceptive screemplay this gem should be object of study for news filmakers such innovating and stylized story!!!
