Ciné: Le Jour se lève

03/06/2012

A brilliant culmination of the poetic realist universe and the definitive pre-war Gabin performance, combining charismatic masculinity, noir sensitivity and ‘boy-next-door’ charm. Gabin’s François is the epitome of the tragic working-class hero, the victim of crushing social forces and moral corruption embodied by the evil Valentin (Jules Berry) – despite romance with the young Françoise (Jacqueline Laurent) and banter with the sassy Clara (Arletty). The use of flashbacks was groundbreaking.
