And that's a good reason to watch it.After all,"les 400 coups" was more of the same :it focused on one character (Antoine Doinel) whereas his Bête Noire Jean Delannoy 's film dealt with several "bad" kids' lives .There are great names in the cast and credits :Gilbert Cesbron,a famous writer,Jean Aurenche,Paul Misraki and of course Jean Gabin as the judge with a big heart.
Unlike "les 400 coups" ,"Chiens perdus sans collier" verges on melodrama but Delannoy's sincerity is certainly true and this film does not put a question mark over his competence.
