What to one prwtograpsei for one of the best movies of French cinema? What to prwtoanalysoyme for one of the smarter and anatreptikotera mystery thriller shot ever? "Les Diaboliques" great French filmmaker Henri-Georges Clouzot resemble Alfred Hitchcock film but surprisingly isn't! However it could be if the "Alfie" had already acquired the rights to the book "Celle qui n'était plus» of Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac. Rumor has it that she lost for a short period of a few hours. Fortunately, however, this conclusion was not fatal since the French colleague of "Hitch" managed to create an exquisite film psychological terror that went down in history as a classic vindicating his creator.

The case revolves around two women who work for the accomplishment of a heinous act. Going to murder her husband and an even more remarkable is that the other woman was, for a time the mistress of her husband.
