In my research, I made an attempt to study not noir itself as a genre, but the characteristic features of its inner reality, its world order, as a special universe. And in this reality, I have identified the dominant force, which, in my opinion, sets the plot and sensual motives, namely the city. The city is an animated character in film noir, sometimes the influence is even stronger than the influence of the characters in certain situations. The city is a special dark force that not only has a significant impact on the narrative, it shapes it to a greater extent, setting the atmosphere of alienation in which the heroes live. Also, an analysis and typology of such elements was carried out, typical of the urban environment, like locations that are repeated in almost every film noir film. A strong connection was revealed between the characteristics of the spaces and the general mood and laws of the city in noir.
