New DCP Restoration

(1935, Maurice Tourneur) Fate? Doom? Crime does pay for Antonin Berval’s genial Justin, as he saves sweet kid Ghislaine Bru from an intentionally watery end, plays who’sgot- the-opium-shipment, and goes off to a windswept showdown. Stylish, colorful, low-key Warner Bros.-type thriller from former Hollywood pioneer Tourneur. Approx. 99 min. DCP.



"Marvelously atmospheric"
– Dave Kehr, The New York Times

"SPLENDID!  It is the defining note of classical control that runs through
this absolutely vital series, which recedes the historically necessary
romantic flood of the New Wave and reveals an intact Atlantis."

– Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
