Victor, an over-the-hill boxer hopes to train his ring successor. One of his proteges is railroad worker Andre, who is hated on sight by Victor’s wife Blanche. Before long, the irresponsible Andre proves that Blanche was right when he abandons his training in favor of a flashy floozie

Our take

15 years and one world war later, Carné, Arletty and Gabin re-unite, and while the result isn’t the classic that is Le jour se lève, it is still an undeniable pleasure to see these two together again. Watching great actors age on-screen, chemistry intact, is one of the beguiling pleasures of cinema.
