  • εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Jenny

    His first feature and it's unbelievable! It's not the technique that is impressive, but his masterful handling of a situation, miles away from both excessive pathos and facile black-and-white ethical schemes, his early taste for uneasy, ambiguous equilibriums, where overall "harmony" is assured by an uncomfortable dosage of guilt and personal justice. Unconventional distributor of righteousness, Carne does not seem..

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Jenny

    Premier long métrage de Marcel Carné, plein de romantisme et de coups de coeur. On y perçoit la grâce et la fraîcheur d'un cinéma populaire intelligent, la patte sensible de Jacques Prévert y faisant déjà des merveilles. On est loin pourtant des meilleures réalisations à venir du metteur en scène que l'on devine proches... www.cinefiches.com
