Full movie description "L'étrange Monsieur Victor":A merchant from Toulon (Raimu) of honorable appearance is in fact a receiver for a band of criminals. Threatened with blackmail, he commits a murder for which an innocent man is condemned to the penal colony (Pierre Blanchar). Eight years later, the convict escapes and our trader collects it.
Reviews of the L'étrange Monsieur VictorOne may surely speak of "L'étrange Monsieur Victor" (1938) and film noir in the same breath, although it's not listed as such by the usual major sources. At a minimum, it is a proto noir. I watched a 95-minute version.
The story is of a respectable shop owner, Raimu, who has another side as a fence of stolen goods. M. Victor is a complex character who cares for his wife and children, who prefers burglaries to violent robberies, but who in a moment of violence kills a confederate and then allows an innocent cobbler, Pierre Blanchar, to be convicted and imprisoned. When Blanchar escapes, Raimu and his wife, Madeleine Renaud, take him in and hide him, leading to a triangle when Blanchar's affection for Renaud grows. Raimu's motive of preserving his status quo is strong as he wards off discovery and hopes to place Blanchar in Switzerland. Raimu equally well conveys a gregarious, nervous and friendly man as a man who can become ruthless, cunning and tough at a moment's notice.
Director Jean Grémillon in conjunction with Werner Krien cinematographer gives us evocative noir visuals in several places during this film. They begin with shadowy afternoon exteriors, narrow streets, and cramped shops. They continue in Raimu's conspiratorial back room where he ages his purloined goods and meets the thieves. The excellent confrontation of Raimu with Georges Flamant has pure noir night lighting, capped with a murder and ending with Raimu running a few steps to a 20 foot wall. At the 53 minute mark begins a beautifully-done noir sequence showing the return of Blanchar to his home ground and his meeting up with Raimu.
The photography becomes more conventional during that portion in which Raimu is hiding Blanchar. However, Grémillon's talent for composition and coaxing changes in character from his cast come to the fore with intense shots of the principals. In addition, he makes good use of the cramped quarters and the presence of children who may interfere with Raimu's plans.
