Thérèse Raquin (1953)

The movie opens and closes with the same overhead shot of Lyons. Carné, like Zola, emphasizes the ordinary tragedy of desperate city folk.

Drôle de Drame (Drôle de drame ou L'étrange aventure de Docteur Molyneux) (1937)

Marcel Carné acts like the perfect traffic cop, guiding his characters through one absurd coincidence after another.
