This would be thriller is actually a pretext to show plenty of numbers at the "Concert Mayol" music hall;also an excuse for displaying lots of topless women ;for a 1954 movie,it's really,so to speak,a record! Instant karma: the movie got a NC 18 ,and the Office Catholique Du Cinéma forbade their flock the movie .Needless to say ,today,it wouldn't shock a twelve-year-old .
As for the story ,it's abysmal : a dancer is the victim of a murder attempt ,soon to be followed by another one,who ,this time ,is killed .The inept screenplay involves an old bachelor ,fond of little women (Jean Tissier,in one his worst roles),bad things which happened in Brazil,blackmail,big chief and all the usual clichés .
Like this ? Try this......
