(Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring James Stewart, Kim Novak and Barbara Bell Geddes.)
One of the Alfred Hitchcock classics. A director who made many films with a very distinctive cinematography style, in the 1940s and 50s, usually also with a dramatic musical score by Bernard Herrmann (and this film is no exception). Starring James Stewart, Kim Novak and Barbara Bell Geddes. Based on a story, “D'entre les morts” by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac.
It's quite a long film, with fairly heavily depressing emotional theme. A man believes his wife has become possessed by someone from from her family's past, that commited suicide, and that his wife is going to do the same. So he enlists the help of a friend (Scotty) to find out what's happening, who accidentally falls in love with her.
Scotty discovers something wrong with everything, but becomes powerless against it. No, it's not a ghost story, it's a tragic romance story.
Like most of the films Alfred Hitchcock directed, this one is a well orchestrated montage of photography and music, with an interesting plot, as well.
