Ciné-Club: “Le Jour se Lève: (1939), Marcel Carné

Department of French and Italian

October 9, 2019 · 7:30 pm ·

This semester, the Ciné-Club will be watching French crime dramas by directors Marcel Carné, Louis Malle, Jean-Pierre Melville, François Truffaut, and Jean-Luc Godard. All films are screened in French with English subtitles. Screenings are followed by informal conversation and discussion.

One of the great works of 1930s poetic realist cinema, Le jour se lève was Marcel Carné’s fourth collaboration with screenwriter and poet Jacques Prévert. In this compelling story of obsessive sexuality and murder, the working-class François (Jean Gabin) resorts to killing in order to free the woman he loves from the controlling influence of another man.
