France | 1938 | b&w | dir. Marcel Carné, with Jean Gabin, Michèle Morgan, Michel Simon

Jean, an army deserter, and Nelly, a 17 year old chick, are doomed lovers on the run in fogbound Le Havre who desperately try to slip away from a dangerous triangle. Marcel Carné and Jacques Prévert fuse superbly pre-war French poetic realism with the ingredients that would become integral post-war film noir.
