Cocaine all over my brain.
19 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Remake of a silent movie of the twenties.

"Faubourg Montmartre" is an old-fashioned melodrama,handicapped by a desultory screenplay which blends prostitution on the boulevards,a murder -which will not be explained-,and even hullabaloo in Corse.

This is the story of two sisters :one of them is a semi-whore with her pimp (played by Charles Vanel),the other one (Gaby Morlay) tries to walk the line,in spite of her sisters' attempts to debauch her.Enter a not-so-handsome young man (A forgotten actor called Pierre Bertin whose performance is absolutely awful)the younger sister falls in love with.

Little by little,the big sister sinks into drug addiction:"I take "coco" she says to her horrified sister.This is the only relative originality of this melodrama.Cocaine is not the good thing to take when you feel depressed and pretty soon,she hears imaginary train whistles in her brain ,and she will wind up in an insane asylum ("you'll spend some time in the country" says the pure girl) Raymond Bernard is best remembered for his version of "les misérables" and his pacifist film "les croix de bois" .
