Crew
Directed by Anatole Litvak


Newly Re-mastered in HD! Screen icons Sophia Loren (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow) and Anthony Perkins (Psycho) star as a poor Parisian couple who embark upon a simple get-rich-quick-scheme… only to find themselves hurtling blindly down a winding road of desperation, deceit and madness. In the grand tradition of Double Indemnity and The Postman Always Rings Twice, Five Miles to Midnight weaves a constantly tightening web of suspense that grips the viewer by the heart and doesn’t let go until the final frame. Filmed entirely in Paris in the stark contrasts of black and white, Five Miles to Midnight is a psychological suspense thriller of the highest order. Two of the film’s best features are the stunning photography by Henri Alekan (Wings of Desire, Topkapi) and the haunting score by Mikis Theodorakis (Serpico, Z). Stylish direction by Anatole Litvak (Sorry, Wrong Number) and featuring wonderful performances by Gig Young (City That Never Sleeps) and Jean-Pierre Aumont (Hotel Du Nord).
