France | 1939 | b&w | dir. Marcel Carné, with Jean Gabin, Jacqueline Laurent, Arletty | restored print

Often considered his greatest work, Marcel Carné’s fourth collaboration with screenwriter Jacques Prévert is a triumph; an exquisitely crafted film noir describing an obsessive relationship that leads to murder, and a classic of French poetic realism starring Jean Gabin as the working-class François who has committed a terrible crime.
