Le Jour se Leve (1939) Le Jour se Leve (1939) Le Jour se Leve (1939)

2012/13 Season


France 1939 (PG)
95 minutes

Directed by Marcel Carné

Ipswich Film Theatre - 22 April 2013 - 7.30pm

The pinnacle of the Carné-Prévert collaboration, and an influence on American film noir, this features Jean Gabin as the doomed hero who, having murdered a man, locks himself in his apartment and reflects on the fateful events of the preceding days.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Good cinema didn’t/doesn’t need explicit romps or special effects; Found it hard to hear at times but what a classic. Reminded me of my Uni days. Interesting fact – Jean Gabin was blinded for several days after making this film due to the light being shone into his eyes constantly. All for poetic realism; Interesting rather than likeable; Load of tosh; Oh dear!
