Synopsis / Plot
At the family-run Hotel du Nord, a young couple check in, planning to commit a double-suicide. Pierre (Jean-Pierre Aumont) shoots his lover Renée (Annabella), but then panics and flees, leaving the gun behind. Renée survives her wound after being found by pimp Edmond (Louis Jouvet). After taking a job at the hotel as a chambermaid, Renée slowly becomes involved in the shifting allegiances and relationships between the people who live and work in the hotel.

Hotel du Nord was the second in Marcel Carne's trio of "fatalistic romantic melodramas", bracketed on either side by Quai des Brumes and Le Jour se Leve.
1940: New York Film Critics Circle: Nominated for Best Foreign Lenguage Film
