Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Often overlooked, this low-key thriller is effective in its own quiet way. Director Hubert Cornfield gives the film a very European feel, making good use of the scenic French locales and stylizing his film in a stylish but never ostentatious manner that allows the story and characters to take center stage. Cornfield's pacing is a bit deliberate at first but he builds tension over time, resulting in a third act that is gripping without having to resort to any hokey dramatic devices. It's also worth noting that Willi Kurant's photography is outstanding, evoking a bleak mood with a minimum of visual artifice. Marlon Brando gives a surprisingly understated performance but puts his trademark 'brooding charisma' to good use, particularly when pitted against fellow crook Richard Boone, who is downright terrifying as a duplicitous, sadistic time bomb of a thug who seems capable of going crazy at any minute. Jess Hahn and Rita Moreno also do fine work as the downtrodden brother/sister criminal partners caught in the middle. The only real quibble one might have with the film is its odd coda, an unusual gambit that won't register well with all viewers and plays in a somewhat dated manner by modern standards. That said, Night Of The Following Day remains a potent and intriguing bit of crime noir that is worth hunting down for film buffs.

    Difficult to follow at times, but still good.

    Brando, as always, is great in anything he does... Richard Boone was frightening...He scared all of us. This is probably the most sadistic role he ever played. It can be difficult to watch at times, but it's still worth watching. The ending is hard to swallow...
