Storyline

Henri, the Man from Nantes, comes back to his country after a successful stay in the United States, where he was working for Liski, the drug dealer. With the fame of being a tough guy preceding him, he sets himself to the task of knowing why the French operations were not so profitable - and soon he is master of all links of the organization. He can now get it honed to perfection - or destroy it. Only... the Police is following his every step! Is Henri what he says he is, or an undercover detective from the French police? Written by Artemis-9

A documentary look at the world of drugs in the fifties.
14 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Henry Decoin made an interesting movie dealing with what was a taboo subject back in 1955.His depiction of the crepuscular world of drugs displays no leniency,and the screenplay often drops the main story and uses documentary vignettes:the little dealers who use the candies machines in the subway for instance .A sober Jean Gabin does not outshadow the rest of the cast:particularly Marcel Dalio,as a big shot ,and Lila Kedrova ,as a junkie ,begging for a few more in the impressive last sequence which gathers near all the cast!
