[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.

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.

An excellent recreation of a colorful French period.

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

An insular underworld drama of love and revenge vibrates authentically against a vividly etched background of early century Paris.

Becker turns what could've been a routine gangster flick into a minor gem with revealing camera work and smart twists.

A radiant Simone Signoret dominates Jacques Becker's 1952 film.

May 24, 2003
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.
