Cine Lumiere introduction:
The creaking wheels of the phantom carriage ridden by Death himself – and driven by the hapless man who dies at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s eve – provide the sinister backdrop for this rare French fantasy film. Pierre Fresnay is remarkable as hard-drinking tough guy, David, whose buddy Georges haunts his nights as the ghostly carriage driver. A woman from the Salvation Army will try to save David from the fate of his friend.
Here is the trailer.
