Film Noir classic from 1954. A woman fights to convince the police that she witnessed a murder. One sleepless night, Cheryl Draper (Barbara Stanwyck) witnesses a young woman being strangled to death in an apartment across the street. She reports the killing to the police, but when the police arrive there's no body to be found.
A dark and droll thriller with comic undertones about the fine art of killing. Mika Muller (Isabelle Huppert) is the head of a Swiss chocolate company who is not above dispensing a potent blend of hot chocolate and dangerous sedatives to those who get in her way. Isabelle Huppert won Best Actress honors for the film at the Montreal World Film Festival and at France's Lumiere Awards, while director Claude Chabrol won the prestigious Prix Louis Delluc.
Marty is the ideal fifth grader. He gets good grades, listens to his teachers, and doesn't start trouble in class. But a darkness is beginning to fall over Marty's life. The kids at school won't stop picking on him, his parents just don't seem to understand him, and now Marty must grapple with a terrible secret that threatens to destroy life as he knows it...
