Classique du cinéma français entièrement reconstitué en studio et le mythique couple Jouvet / Arletty. www.cinefiches.com
But who would love me if I lived there?
I wonder if "The Great Northern" hotel in Lynch's "Twin Peaks" wasn't inspired by this.
There is a famous encounter between Louis Jouvet and Arletty. When he refers to her as "atmosphere," her outraged response is hilarious. You can see it on YouTube.
Arletty is wonderful, but this thing could use a bit more subtlety
Louis Jouvet was great as always! French noir hero from the 30s.
Louis Jouvet is incredible.
