According to Wikipedia, the film noir genre refers to mystery and crime dramas that were produced from the early 1940s into the late 1950s. Movies of this genre were characteristically shot in black & white and featured stories involving femmes fatales, doomed heroes or anti-heroes and tough, cynical detectives.
In 1946, French critic Nino Frank first used the term film noir, which is French for black or dark film, to describe a genre of Hollywood films. Before the film noir nomenclature was widely adopted in the 1970s, many classic films noir were referred to as melodramas.
Whether film noir qualifies as a distinct genre is a matter of ongoing debate among motion picture scholars but one thing there’s no doubt about, the film noir look works great for intimate portraiture.
