One of Jean Marais's last parts.
8 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film has become very obscure.Even the title did not mean a thing to me.It's the names of the actors which got me thinking.Actually the director is French and the leads are too.The movie was shown in the theaters as "le paria" (the outcast) If my memory serves me well,it's the story of a guy with a great heart pursued by villains who finds refuge in a widow's house in the country.She has a little boy.His coming will put the two people in jeopardy.He will sacrifice himself for her.

Marie-José Nat ,a beautiful brunette ,and Jean Marais who plays here one of his last parts ,are the main interest of a routine story.
