(1938, Marcel Carné) Upstairs from a first communion celebration at the eponymous hostelry, photographer Louis Jouvet and hooker Arletty trade vulgarly hilarious jibes, while Jean-Pierre Aumont and Annabella check in with nothing left to live for. But after a failed double suicide, inadvertent fame, a love zigzag, and a crook’s reckoning, it’s time for Bastille Day celebrations. Approx. 95 min. 35mm.
“The real star is production designer Alexandre Trauner (Children of Paradise, The Apartment), whose studio sets - the mournful canal bank, the little iron bridge, the shabby rooms - are as amazingly evocative as Maurice Jaubert's score.”
