Named one of the best crime films of all time by the Guardian.

A man (Jean Gabin) barricades himself in a room after committing a murder, and over the course of an evening, runs through the events that led to the killing. A poetic film that runs the gamut of emotions, from love at first sight, to jealousy and rage. Told mostly in flashback, this story perfectly illustrates Marcel Carné’s mastery of poetic realism and Jacques Prévert’s appreciation of the lyricism of everyday speech.
