Quai des Orfèvres (Henri-Georges Clouzot, 1947)

An early Henri-Georges Clouzot thriller, it isn't piercing like his best work, but it's bizarrely warm and enjoyable. A bickering music hall couple, their icy lesbian neighbour, a seasoned detective and a sticky murder get tangled in the convoluted plot. Clouzot injects it with verve and atmosphere.
