  1. guillermo's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    Masterpiece. Everyone lives towards something else, somewhere else, sometime else. Such shift goes for characters and for editing. Some fast sequences are pure Eisenstein, poetic and beautiful. The final walk from the Casbah to the pier, a dead-man-walking scene, brings everything together. Law, outlaw. Love, hate. Confidence, jelousy. Illusion, hard truth. Life, death. Unforgettable.

    Gabin is incorruptible on that one. Thumbs up! Great and fast edition, electric.

  6. I.Camera's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    A great 'exotic' thriller, with elements of early French noir and 1930s poetic realism. Gabin is suitably weathered as the handsome criminal hiding out in the Casbah maze, with Line Noro and Mireille Balin providing support as his lovers (some of the more cliched gangster extras are less welcome). The film - a clear influence on the Third Man - showed what could be done in the genre when the Hays Code wasn't applied.

  7. alessandrofarris001's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    4.5 Pepe's tragic downfall, caused by love and his lover's jealousy, is brought to life by Jean Gabin's performance and undeniable charm. I'm not the biggest poetic realism fan but this was extremely entertaining and ultimately heartbreaking.

  8. Carlos Pineda's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    (4/5) Un filme con muchos buenos elementos. La presencia de Gabin, es uno. Un guion lleno de humor y con el temperamento francès ante el amor. Con una reconstrucciòn en estudio de un espacio àrabe muy propio de lugares de norÀfrica. Duvivier es un director preciso, con control pleno de cada aspecto y con un final coherente con el planteamiento principal del argumento. Visto ahora puede parecer un poco inverosìmil...

  9. lucio carbonelli's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    the description of the casbah at the beginning of the film is beautiful and precious. so evocative. and so is the film, beautiful and romantic. despite all the crime. the longing for paris, love and freedom, is touching, and sad.

  10. Ric O's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    a pillar of the poetic realism movement, this french classic with Jean Gabin at his most charming, although sexist and outdated on some aspects, delivers on that magnificent artificial world that only cinema at its best can produce

  13. Arthur Freitas's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    PÉPÉ LE MOKO creates this beautiful conflict of Pépé being in the middle of wars: both with himself, who wants to get out of hiding to be able to finally embrace love; and with police, who will hunt him even if it takes to destroy all of Casbah. It's a mature love tragedy, with surprising political observations of the Casbah, that serves both as a setting and as a illustration of the journey that Pépé will make.

  14. Korial's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    A great classical drama. It does not set sails off the safe harbour of the genre standards (characters feel static and a bit detached from the context they live in, the story develops around a simple opposition of elements) but this makes the movie stand firm and proud. Charming and entertaining, as well as plenty of memorable scenes and touching moments.

  17. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    This is the original film. 'Algiers' and 'Casbah' which have similar plots came later. It stars the marvelous Jean Gabin as the title character. Freedom or love. Which is more important? It has lots of action and gunplay. It's a bit overstylized in the way Pepe is photographed. They're trying to make him seem more of a legend, which they really don't have to. Gabin is a legend.

  18. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Pépé le Moko

    Cinematically beautiful and thematically interesting. Set in the in the Casbah of Algiers. Rare to see this part of the world portrayed in 30s cinema, let alone filmed with such delicacy.

    The way Pépé looks at her... Oh my. Not my favorite of the poetic realist films, but some scenes of the Moroccan streets are wonderful.
