DÉDÉE D'ANVERS   1:30

Dedee d'anvers

Bursting through the echoes of "poetic realism" contained within its narrative, DÉDÉE D'ANVERS showcases the emergence of Simone Signoret, a hooker with a hankering for a better life. The original French femme fatale, Signoret is both luminous and complex, presaging a series of follow-up performances in similarly-themed films over the next half-decade. With Bernard Blier, Marcello Pagliero, Jane Marken and Marcel Dalio. Evocatively photographed by Jean Bourgoin (BLACK ORPHEUS, MR. ARKADIN). Dir. Yves Allégret (1948, 86 min.).

EN CAS DE MALHEUR / LOVE IS MY PROFESSION  3:15

En cas de malheur -  Love Is My Profession

Gabin! Bardot! Oh-la-la (or, should we say, OMG)!! The trouble starts when Gabin, a distinguished lawyer, defends Bardot, a prostitute who has committed a robbery. He gets her off, and finds (to everyone's dismay, including his wife) that he gets off on her; she becomes his mistress. Alas, Gabin's efforts to "upscale" her are frought with peril, for she has another lover, a handsome young student (Franco Interlenghi), who slowly builds into a murderous rage. With Edwige Feuillère. Based on a novel by Georges Simenon. Dir. Claude Autant-Lara (1958, 105 min.)
