Accomplished French exploitation movie.
5 December 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

These dramas of the streets were a common form of French movie in the fifties - MARKET IN WOMEN and the Robert Hossein films and this is easily the pick of the bunch.

Strong cast are shot by the great Roger Hubert, who did films for Carné, and the scripting and production give things an involving texture. Francoise Arnoul. our dream girl of the fifties, is in her element as the corrupted innocent that the action swirls around and there are even some effective dramatic scenes, like the bar confrontation between truck driver Pierre Cressoy and pimp Raymond Pellegrin.

Sleazy or not, something like this obliterated the contemporary British film and even a lot of the material that was getting wider exposure from the US.

The team tried to go again with RAGE AU CORPS with less impact.
