1960. France/Italy. Directed by René Clément. Written by Paul Gégauff, based on the novel The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith. With Alain Delon, Marie Laforêt, Maurice Ronet, Bill Kearns. This early, successful adaptation of the Highsmith novel, photographed in Eastmancolor by Henri Decaë, features a young Alain Delon at his most handsome, persuasive, and deadly. The film is a delicious French thriller (by an American ex-pat) set during the heat of summer in a millionaire’s playground, where yachts, alcohol, and women abound. In French; English subtitles. 115 min.
