Salacious accusations swirl as a series of poison pen letters circulates through a small French town – all signed with the nom-de-plume “The Raven.” The primary target of the letters, Dr. Rémy Germain (Pierre Fresnay), struggles to deduce the identity of the anonymous rumormonger before the town destroys itself. 

Reviews and Quotes 2

"UNFORGETTABLE...Le Corbeau is a hellbrew that has lost not a fraction of its flavor, and it feels all to pertinent
to the age of trolls."
— Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

"A SUPERB NOIR THRILLER!" 
— Philip French, The Guardian

"As brilliantly nasty as [Clouzot's later] Wages of Fear and Diabolique or indeed anything this misanthropic filmmaker ever did." 
— J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
