L’Étrange Monsieur Victor

Part of Jean Grémillon
Sunday, November 30, 2014, 5:30 p.m.

Dir. Jean Grémillon. 1938, 99 mins. 35mm. With Raimu, Pierre Blanchar, Viviane Romance. Victor is a Jekyll & Hyde shopkeeper who moonlights in underworld trade. The walls dividing his double life crack when he commits a murder and allows another man to be jailed for the crime. Grémillon breaks down the walls between naturalism and stylization, integrating scenes from the docks of Toulouse with sets constructed at the Ufa studios in Berlin.
