Director Jean Delannoy depicts the true life of juvenile delinquents.
French director Jean Delannoy has made 40 feature films in his long as well as illustrious career.He is best known for his film "La Symphonie Pastorale" based on the book by famous French writer André Gide.However,"The little rebels" is one of his important films which deserves a wider audience.This film is about some juvenile delinquents whose boring lives change for good when they come into contact with a kind yet practical judge.Superstar of French cinema,Jean Gabin plays the judge's role with firm conviction.In an important scene,when he punishes a young criminal,one of his colleagues says that this boy would end up hating you like other boys before him.His nonchalant reply is that I am being paid to do this type of work. 'Chiens Perdus Sans Collier' is based on a best selling novel by Gilbert Chesbon which was published in 1954. One should just watch initial fifteen minutes of this film to understand the extent to which a juvenile can go in order to have fun.The film is able to win viewers' sympathies through its honest portrayal of young people who commit offenses.There is an air of authenticity in the events which take place in an "observation center" for young delinquents.These are two key reasons to watch this film.
