Jean Gabin, Jacqueline Laurent, Arletty
- Marcel Carné offers up a superlative example of French poetic realism. This doomed romantic melodrama stars the great Jean Gabin as François who, in the film’s opening scenes, fatally shoots a man. Trapped in his room and surrounded by police, François looks back at the events that brought him to such a predicament, particularly his love for Françoise, an orphan like him.
