This is the story of two losers.We learn to know them little by little.

Pierre (Gabin) is a quiet man;he works in a library ,he's a well-respected man,he seems to know everyone and if you are searching for a job,he can be helpful.But he leads a double life.He is actually a gangster and he is up to something.

She (Madeleine Robinson) is an English teacher,he finds her a job.She is kind to her students ,she comes from the Provinces and she is a guest in a boarding house (those boarding houses were a permanent feature of the old French cinema.Nowadays they tend to disappear ,and not only from the screen)with Pierre.

One of Pierre's so called pals informs the Police and he becomes a hunted man.Madeleine helps him find places where he can hide.First,we do not really comprehend why she acts like this.In fact,she came to Paris because her past was too hard to bear (a failed bourgeois marriage,drugs).Pierre 's youth was poisoned by rich wealthy parents who wanted him to be a surgeon ;but an abortion led him to his downfall.

"Leur Dernière Nuit' can be depicted as Neo Realisme Poétique,with one difference: now the heroes are too old to sail away to the Islands in the Sun,as in "Quai des Brumes" .The last line is Madeleine Robinson's screaming Pierre's name ,as Michèle Morgan did fifteen years before.
