Manon (French pronunciation: ​[manɔ̃]) is a 1949 French film directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot. It is a loose adaptation of the 1731 novel Manon Lescaut by Abbé Prévost.

The film won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.



Clouzot updates the setting to World War II, making the story about a French Resistance fighter who rescues a woman from villagers convinced she is a Nazi collaborator.
