Storyline

Jean the piano player introduces Georgia, a new, promising singer, to a handsome young-man in a Paris' night-club. From contact to contract, Georgia is soon traveling to Hong Kong with Mitzi, another cabaret artist, the pianist and the man with whom she is flirting. In their first night out, the girls watch a man being attacked and abducted by a pair of local thugs. Next thing, they are reading about the man's death in the papers, and are being hunted by the criminals. Georgia and Mitzi will then learn that their companions are not exactly a typical piano player and businessman. Suspition leads the girls to fight each other, but they'll unite for survival in a seedy environment. Written by Artemis-9

Hong Kong blues.
14 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

The plot of this thriller ,concerning diamonds trafficking ,is thoroughly devoid of interest .

This flick is a vehicle for singer Dalida,and a pretext to highlight her songs,although none of the titles she performs in "L'Inconnue De Hong Kong" was one of the artist's hits.A reason why you would watch this dud is the presence of Serge Gainsbourg ,who performs a duet with the star :he is the artistic director of the night club and he asks the new chanteuse and her mate to rehearse :after a few seconds ,he laconically says :"that will do" ;then the artists worry : "it's enough?";terse answer by the probably bored Serge :"it ain't Stravinsky!"
