Le Trou Review


Excellent
For a movie about digging a hole, Le Trou is pretty damn good. In typical French fashion (see also Rififi), the film utilitzes long, unbroken, often dialogue-free shots to dramatize its story: a simple one of prisoners attempting an ambitious escape from prison. While the beginning is stagey and stilted, once the movie gets going it's hard to look away, despite a 2 1/2 hour running time. Excellent work from Jacques Becker.
