Critic Reviews for Casque d'Or
The favorite role of star Simone Signoret this is a bravura period romance costarring Serge Reggiani that masterfully interweaves love, violence and fate in turn-of-the-century Paris.
An insular underworld drama of love and revenge vibrates authentically against a vividly etched background of early century Paris.
Audience Reviews for Casque d'Or
simone signoret causes a whole lotta trouble but she's down for her man. the second impressive becker crime film i've seen. based on a true story, with old fashioned tragic romance that's not sappy and wonderful evocation of the demimonde in la belle époque
[font=Century Gothic]"Casque D'or" starts out on an idyllic summer day as a group of friends make their way to a tavern via boats. While there, one of them, Raymond(Raymond Bussieres) recognizes an old pal from prison, Jo(Serge Reggiani), who has since gone straight as a carpenter and is at the tavern with his boss. Raymond introduces Jo to his friends, one of whom is the beautiful Marie(Simone Signoret). Jo and Marie share a dance but this makes her fellow, Roland(William Sabatier), immensely jealous and he confronts Jo. But Jo clocks him before making his exit.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]These men are all part of a criminal gang headed by Felix Leca(Claude Dauphin), a crime boss with delusions of respectability. He sees that the altercation at the tavern could lead to waves in his finely tuned organization. So, he asks Marie to choose between the two men by that night...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Casque D'or" starts slowly but gets better as it goes along and builds towards a powerfully emotional climax. The movie explores the notion that we are all free and cannot be owned by others. Therefore, it is ironic that most of the characters are thieves.[/font]
