(1937, Jean Grémillon) Jean Gabin (“the most affecting performance of his long career” – Elliott Stein) basks in the audible female oohs and aahs as he struts by in his snappy Spahi uniform. But has the “Mug of love” (very rough translation of the title) met his match as he falls for rich Parisienne Mireille Balin? Approx. 94 min. 16mm.



“The surface realism combined with the sobriety and simplicity of Gremillon’s direction (no mists, no decorative effects, no fancy montage) confer on the film a kind of solidity touched with simple grandeur”
– Richard Roud
