Leur Dernière Nuit is a rather good surprise in french film noir. Jean Gabin has a double life (like he did in Le Miroir in 1947 with a stunning end) : he is a respected librarian and a gangster.
He helps a young woman to find some work and she helps him back when he is in danger. Madeleine Robinson plays this woman and she's very touching.
Not a masterpiece but some scenes are very interesting (for lovers of old France like me). The director George Lacombe does some very fine job, and the next year, he directs La Lumière D'En Face with a very erotic and perverse Brigitte Bardot before Et Dieu Créa La Femme.
Leur Dernière Nuit prefigures Gabin's specialty in playing gangsters. Enjoy.
