Μυθοπλασία/Fiction, Η.Π.Α./USA, 1940, 130’ 4K DCP, α/μ/b&w, Με ήχο/Sound

Hitchcock’s debut in Hollywood, is an entirely British film under the American influence, “first because of Selznick, who had just made Gone with the wind, and then because the screenplay was written by the Sherwood, who gave it a broader viewpoint than it would have had if made in Britain”, as Hitchcock remarks. It’s about the story of woman who marries a lord, who can’t get over the mysterious death of his first wife. The housekeeper dominates him and the mansion. “The mechanism of Rebecca is remarkable. The sinister momentum is built up solely through references to a dead woman who is never shown”, as Truffaut writes.
