Port of Shadows vs. Love Is My Profession



on 9/17/2011

Jean Gabin flicks. In Port of Shadows, he's a soldier trying to get away from something. Now I forget if he ever explains what. Anyway, he slaps around a local gangster a few times and gets involved in some dark family issues while waiting to escape on a boat. In Love Is My Profession, he's a lawyer defending Brigitte Bardot who also becomes his mistress. Port of Shadows is the more memorable film, I would say. It has a certain style to it that I like, and insightful dialogue. Love Is My Profession has Bardot, which helps most any movie. I'm not sure that I cared much about any of the characters, though.
