Hôtel du Nord
Directed by Marcel Carné • 1938 • France
Hotel Du Nord isn't as well known as the two movies Marcel Carné made before and after, Port Of Shadows and Le Jour Se Lève. But any Carné, especially pre-war Carné (and doubly so with Arletty in the cast), is worth seeing. Annabella is the star of this drama, about a star-crossed couple, betrayal, and redemption involving a procuror (Louis Jouvet) who is profoundly affected by her innocence.
