“One of the few psychological thrillers that is genuinely psychological, depending on subtle clues - a gesture, an intonation - to thought and character.” - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
“An essential movie in anyone's canon.” - Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
After the death of her aunt, Paula (Ingrid Bergman) is sent to study in Italy. While there, she falls in love with the charming Gregory Anton (Charles Boyer). The two return to London, and Paula begins to notice strange goings-on: missing pictures, footsteps in the night and gaslights that dim without being touched. As she fights to retain her sanity, her new husband's intentions come into question.
