This movie may have been a classic for its time, however, by today's standards, it tends to become boring after a while. This movie is definitely for a viewer who understands the French Language and is into foreign films simply because they are foreign. In my opinion it should not be compared to Hitchcock's work.
It is a fair movie, one that I watched one time, as compared to movies like Rear Window, that I have view at least over 20 times.
In my recommendation, I said "Yes" because each viewer would have to judge for themself, therefore, I would not sway any potential viewer.
