Charming French cinematic gem ...
5 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hotel du Nord is a charming and atmospheric film from right before the second world war in France. The ensemble of characters are all likable

  • of course it helps that the acting is so great and the dialog so


sharp. As the star-crossed young lovers - Jean-Pierre Aumont and Annabella sparkle. Though this film deals with the underclass of Parisian society, it's a group of people whom you wouldn't mind at all spending a summer evening with, drinking wine, and conversing together. Final note - This film also makes it clear that the French cinema like its counterparts in other European countries was very far ahead of a more Puritanical American cinema in openly portraying prostitutes or gay people.
