Just released from prison after serving a six-month sentence, Fernand Bastia goes into hiding. He has indeed double-crossed his gang by keeping part of the product of a robbery for himself. Thanks to his sister Marcella, Fernand has taken refuge in a small circus where she works. There, he falls in love with Gina but also arouses the jealousy of Quedchi, a fairground stall-holder who has seen him hiding the stolen money. After a while, Fredo Riccioni, the boss of the gang and his men, manage to trace him... Written by Collin, Daniel

The place is a real circus today.
30 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

(the new barker to the acrobat)

-Can I have a trailer door key?

-What for?There's nothing to steal in here!

The new barker is actually a gangster who has double-crossed his accomplices and has hidden a part of loot in the trailer.He has taken refuge in a seedy circus where a gypsy is spying on him.Besides his angry ex-pals are not far either.

Raymond Pellegrin and a young Jeanne Moreau team up again after Henri Decoin's "Les Intrigantes" (1954).They get good support from a very good cast which includes Mouloudji,Paul Meurisse (many people saw him in "les Diaboliques"),Howard Vernon and Jacques Dufilho.Michel Audiard, as usual,provides the movie with fine lines and Pierre Billon's directing is effective.A true film noir with lots of dead bodies .

Mijanou Bardot,Brigitte's sister, plays the circus owner's daughter.
