Critic Reviews for Le Jour se lève (Daybreak)
"Le Jour Se Leve" is an exploration of the question of who we love and why and how we love them that is surprisingly fresh and involving.
Gorgeously melancholy, and not just because of its tragic love-triangle plot ...
This prototype of film noir, from 1939, is both a grim feast of prewar French acting and a catalogue of French moods on the eve of disaster.
Audience Reviews for Le Jour se lève (Daybreak)
awesome, i saw this a long time ago
one of the great doomed romantic epics of poetic realism, with director marcel carné, his writing partner, the poet jacques prévert, and the fatalistic hero of so many films of the era, jean gabin, all at the height of their powers. wonderful atmosphere
Great film! Jean Gabin puts on a clinic.
