Critic Reviews for Casque d'Or
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.
[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.
Audience Reviews for Casque d'Or
This film is in desperate need of a more charismatic leading lady. Simone Signoret wears the most unappealing smirk throughout the first half, a smug and amused little smile. She comes off like a cold fish, and that's really the problem with this whole movie. It lacks the passion it so anxiously attempts to convey. Nonetheless, it must be noted for its luminous photography and some astonishing shots.
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
Turn of the century gangsters, waltzes, boating, ladies of the evening, honor, dishonor, and righteous violence. And Signoret! A marvelous entertainment.
