SYNOPSIS

'Brooding, beautifully made and drenched in atmosphere, Henri-Georges Clouzot's knockout 1947 crime thriller/film noir Quai des Orfèvres  is back in town. Originally released in the U.S. as 'Jenny Lamour,' Quai returns in a new 4K restoration with the soul-destroying shadows of its vintage Paris ambience so crisply presented you can almost smell the sweat of its music hall numbers and the cigarette smoke drifting over rain-drenched streets. Quai couldn't be a full-fledged film noir without a corpse, and when someone shows up dead things start to get truly complicated for Jenny, Maurice and their best friend Dora Monnier.' LA Times
