With an introduction and post film discussion by Howie Movshovitz

In visual terms, Le Jour Se Leve is about narrow verticality. At the outset, Marcel Carné and art director Alexandre Trauner emphasize the singular height of a building – where on the top floor François (Jean Gabin) awaits the repercussions of killing a man. It’s hard to get up the tight staircase that leads to his room, but as you see soon enough, it’s easy to tumble down.
