Cine Cities#3: Paris qui dort

3 shots from Raymond Bernard's Les misérables (1934)
Created completely inside the walls of studio. Production Design by Lucien Carré and Jean Perrier - Set Decoration by Paul Colin.

“Perhaps there is something in the air, in the way that the spontaneous spirit of all the collaborators suits my temperament. The French do the work in an instant that the English, who are nonetheless charming, take two hours to do with solemn slowness; or the Germans can only carry out with the most precise orders. The French may grumble but they do it so well!” -- Anatole Litvak about filmmaking in Paris.
