Port of Shadows (1938)
AroView: The forever anti-heroic Jean Gabin takes on an underworld of pimps and perverts in this brooding French classic.
Gabin plays a military deserter who finds love and trouble (and a small dog) in a smoky French port city.
A major influence on the film noir movement, this is a gorgeous example of poetic realism, with it’s hazy lights, wet cobblestones and romantic fatalism. Perfect for a rainy night in.
