Lino Ventura is the patsy in a murder-inheritance scheme
11 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"125 Rue Montmartre" (1959) is a modest and good film noir which is on the fun side. It's not too long. The current rating of 6.4 is about right. The story is tight; it addresses all the questions that one might have. The characters behave realistically in their situations. The story is entertaining.

Lino Ventura plays a down-to-earth guy who sells newspapers on the street. His girl friend is Dora Doll. One day he pulls an attempted suicide (Robert Hirsch) out of the Seine. This involves him in troubles he never anticipated, which include being arrested as a murder suspect. The dead man is a wealthy guy whose wife is played by Andréa Parisy. The police inspector is Jean Desailly.

This is a very capable cast. Paris looks great. The final sequence at a circus has a Hitchcock feel to it, and that helped me guess what was going to happen.

The main negative of the story (and really minor) is that the police investigation is on the short side. Their suspicions of the culprits come rather too easily given the problems with certain testimony offered by a key person. However, this is not a big negative. This is after all a b-picture. Its charm more than makes up for this shortcoming. To have remedied that by additional plotting would have made the story weightier but have diminished its captivating quality.
