"The Hôtel du Nord is a family-run hotel on the edge of the Canal Saint-Martin in Paris. As the family is celebrating a first communion, a young couple checks in, planning a double suicide. Only one shot is fired, and the man, Pierre, flees leaving his lover, Renée, to die in the room. But, he leaves the gun behind and she survives. A series of convoluted affairs between hotel patrons and staff, as well as passion-feuled travels across France, ensue - all to end the story in perfect symmetry. From the director of Les Enfants du Paradis (1945), Hôtel du Nord (1938) was inspired by the award-winning book (1928) by Eugène Dabit, whose parents owned the real Hôtel du Nord."--Container
