This is a 1953 drama film directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
The film is based on a 1902 French play by Paul Anthelme called "Nos deux consciences (Our Two Consciences)," which Hitchcock saw in the 1930s.
It seldom gets mentioned in any Hitchcock documentaries or when discussing about his movies.
It doesn't offer the usual amount of excitement or thrilling entertainment than his better known ones.
In fact, there isn't much of "real" suspense at all, but performances of Montgomery Clift and Anne Baxter are superb.
This is one of the best serious and thought-provoking films Hitchcock had ever made.

Excellent film noir - I was confused at first about the setting but Montreal was priceless. At first I thought it was Paris but then it was obvious it was Montreal, where I've never been & would like to go.

Filmed in Quebec City and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Much of the city looks the same now as it does in the movie, made in the dying days of WW2. Includes scenes shot inside the historic Chateau Frontenac, a hotel that dominates the skyline of old Quebec City. Not one of Hitchcock's best, but still interesting.
