    About

    Times (UK): "Elevator to the Gallows was the perfect opening to the French New Wave in 1958."

    The Guardian: "What a supremely stylish and watchable picture it is."

    The Daily Telegraph: "Few debuts come punchier, cooler, and more influential than Louis Malle's 1958 thriller."

    Télérama: "Miles Davis' trumpet improvises to accompany Jeanne Moreau wandering through the streets. It seems to express the young woman's ineffable helplessness."
