Trivia

In the Italian post-synchronized version, the actors are dubbed by: Emilio Cigoli (Jean Gabin), Lidia Simoneschi (Arletty), Stefano Sibaldi (Roland Lessaffre) and Vinicio Sofia (Folco Lulli). Maria Pia Casilio who was still on location in France filming The Adultress (1953) was not able to get back to Rome in time for the post synchronization so it was Rosetta Calavetta who lent her voice for the role of the shy Maria Pozzi. Only Ave Ninchi ended up dubbing herself. See more »

A Tale of Two Classes
16 February 2006 | by (London, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

L'Air de Paris, a film about the dreams and realities of a young boxer by the name of André Menard (Lesaffre) is set in 1950's Paris. The film starts rather slowly and the plot only picks up towards the middle of the film as André and his bourgeois love interest Corinne (Daëms) begin to get closer together. The difference of class status between the two makes compelling viewing, especially when Corinne attends a boxing match to watch André fight, largely frequented by the rowdy, working class Parisian faithful. The boxing scenes are convincing with Jean Gabin playing the role of André's coach effectively as the wise old ex-professional. In the earlier scenes of the film, Gabin and Arletty really connect and seem very natural alongside each other. The underlying theme is of the internal struggle of André and Corinne to break free from their social backgrounds and from being stereotyped by society and their close friends. This film is a tale of two classes.
