Casque d’or / Golden Marie by Jacques Becker (96′)


Jacques Becker lovingly evokes the Belle Epoque and the Parisian demi-monde in this classic tale of doomed romance. When Marie, the gangster’s moll, falls for reformed criminal Manda, their passion incites an underworld rivalry that leads inexorably to treachery and tragedy.

With poignant, nuanced performances and sensuous black-and-white photography, Casque d’or is Becker at the height of his cinematic powers—a romantic masterpiece.
