Storyline

Marcel works as assistant to a jeweller whose bossy daughter Renée keeps hitting on him. When he meets lovely Loulou and her lazy friend Jo, he is fascinated by the girl and somehow attracted by their world : Loulou and Jo are crooks.

Silly plot,wonderful actors.
28 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is Lehman's only claim to fame,although he was helped by Claude Autant-Lara who was to become one of the most important directors of the years to come("Douce","le diable au corps").It's not much of a plot (a fric frac=break-in),but the fabulous threesome make it a winner.Michel Simon plays a gentle thug,so lazy his nickname is "Jo with the arms cut".Arletty is Loulou ,a whore who teaches slang to the respectable Marcel ,a clerk in a jeweller's shop ,object of his two "friends' " desire.A lot of fun is guaranteed for all!
