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.
