Review
The notorious Pepe Le Moko is a wanted man, women long for him, rivals hope to destroy him, and the law is breathing down his neck at every turn. On the lam in Algiers' labyrinthine Casbah, Pepe is safe from the clutches of the police until a Parisian playgirl compels him to risk his life and leave its confines once and for all. Julien Duvivier's 'Pepe Le Moko' is one of the most influential films of the 20th Century and a landmark of French poetic realism, sinuous camerawork, dingy sets, deep shadows, and even darker motives - THE fore-runner of Film Noir!
