Pure cinematic poetry – everything you need to know about Poetic Realism is right here. Marcel Carne and Jacques Prevert hit on a very specific tone and atmosphere with their best work (this, Le jour se leve, Les visiteurs du soir); romance, tragedy, grit, toughness, sensitivity, existentialism, fatalism, transience all intertwined. There is nothing else like it.
