    It's the kind of classic I never tire of.

    Both _Le jour se lève_ and _Hôtel du Nord_ are true gems, although I must admit a slight preference for _Le jour se lève_, which actually shocked me when I saw it for the first time. I didn't expect this kind of unrepentant bleakness from a French movie by creators I always associated with more "poetic" movies.

    _Le jour se lève_ reminds me of Léo Malet's _Trilogie Noire_. Malet, of course, was also a poet...
