It's about Paris--though not a single scene is either set or shot there.
April 27, 2009
Interesting movement holds through the entirety. Life in the native quarter, with its squalor and intrigues, is particularly well presented and photographed.

Captures the vibrancy of colonial Northern Africa with intimate sensual detail

Gabin is marvelous as the confident yet restless Pépé, a cultured man equal parts elegance and edgy brutality at home in this urban jungle but restless to escape.

A milestone of prewar French cinema and fun picture under any circumstances.
June 27, 2002

Pepe le Moko, made in 1937, begins with that tinny, swooning French soundtrack music that conjures up European movies before the war, but it isn't until a few minutes later that you realize you're in for something special.

[Gabin] magnetically holds the viewer just as Pepe rules the casbah -- with suavity, charm, machismo and a powerful aura of fallen divinity.
October 21, 2002
It's not just an important film; it's also great entertainment, a compelling screen romance -- and one of the best places to see hunky Jean Gabin at the height of his career.
February 9, 2006
Film noir as we know (and love) it is just around the corner from here.
January 26, 2003
the film that made consummate French actor Jean Gabin a star

This is the closest Duvivier came to Renoir, which is no mean feat.

If you've never seen the film, you may be pleasantly surprised by the unexpected complexity of the intrigues and the lyrical force of the feelings.
