An excellent recreation of a colorful French period.
An insular underworld drama of love and revenge vibrates authentically against a vividly etched background of early century Paris.
One of the great movie romances.
A radiant Simone Signoret dominates Jacques Becker's 1952 film.
[VIDEO ESSAY] Draped in the manners of fin de siècle in Paris, writer-director Jacques Becker's 1952 milestone of romantic drama is a snapshot of French social mores at the turn of the 20th century.
One of the great films of French cinema.
Tough, lyrical, and one the screen's great romantic tragedies.
Most movies would ramp up the adrenaline to show the suspense-oriented ending, but Becker would rather emphasize the feelings behind these events. He shows Marie's face for long, potent moments, and that's all the drama he needs.
Becker turns what could've been a routine gangster flick into a minor gem with revealing camera work and smart twists.
It's Signoret's show, though, and she steals it with aplomb: beautiful and graceful she often puts in stunning performances, but few are as memorably captivating as this one.
Apesar da bela fotografia, da boa condução da narrativa (obra de Jacques Becker) e do magnetismo de Simone Signoret, o filme encontra-se datado e sua trágica história de amor não comove.
simone signoret causes a whole lotta trouble but she's down for her man. the second impressive becker crime film i've seen. based on a true story, with old fashioned tragic romance that's not sappy and wonderful evocation of the demimonde in la belle époque
[font=Century Gothic]"Casque D'or" starts out on an idyllic summer day as a group of friends make their way to a tavern via boats. While there, one of them, Raymond(Raymond Bussieres) recognizes an old pal from prison, Jo(Serge Reggiani), who has since gone straight as a carpenter and is at the tavern with his boss. Raymond introduces Jo to his friends, one of whom is the beautiful Marie(Simone Signoret). Jo and Marie share a dance but this makes her fellow, Roland(William Sabatier), immensely jealous and he confronts Jo. But Jo clocks him before making his exit.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]These men are all part of a criminal gang headed by Felix Leca(Claude Dauphin), a crime boss with delusions of respectability. He sees that the altercation at the tavern could lead to waves in his finely tuned organization. So, he asks Marie to choose between the two men by that night...[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"Casque D'or" starts slowly but gets better as it goes along and builds towards a powerfully emotional climax. The movie explores the notion that we are all free and cannot be owned by others. Therefore, it is ironic that most of the characters are thieves.[/font]
