Casque d’Or

“This elegant masterwork is a glowingly nostalgic evocation of the Paris of the Impressionists, focusing on the apache underworld and an ill-starred romance that ends on the scaffold, with an elusive density, a probing awareness of emotional complexities, which reminds one that Becker was once Renoir’s assistant.”(Tom Milne, Time Out)

Director Jacques Becker and star Simone Signoret transport noir-ish fatalism to the Belle Epoque with striking results in this romantic tragedy based on the true story of a desperate bisexual prostitute. But Becker’s intentions are never lurid: the quiet beauty of an afternoon in a provincial church carries as much weight as the brutal back-alley stabbing that puts the plot in motion.
