Jean Gabin stars in the offbeat mood piece Le Port de Desir (Port of Desire). Gabin plays an elderly deep-sea diver, who, while going about his underwater business, discovers the corpse of a young woman. It turns out that the body has been entombed by the unhinged leader of a criminal gang. Gabin hopes to bring the criminal to justice and to save heroine Andree Debar from a similar fate. If Gabin had harbored any romantic hopes for Andree, however, these are scuttled by the presence of handsome Henri Vidal. Not too compelling when on dry land, Le Port de Desir picks up tremendously during the underwater scenes.
