Not really a girls in jail movie...
30 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

It's not about a real hard and dark film noir you have to deal with. Not WOMEN'S PRISON, CAGED, BETRAYED WOMEN or even STORY OF MOLLY X. No. Just a little drama which takes place more in a sort of boarding school than in a jail. Inmates have pretty comfortable bedrooms and there is not vicious and sadistic warden in petticoat in the Ida Lupino style - WOMEN'S PRISON - in it.

It never falls into comedy, but it remains a little mystery film telling the story of a young woman sent behind bars because she is accused to have stolen a wallet. But is she really guilty?

There are some another things in this picture, but nothing unusual.

It's one of the hundred of movies that George Archaimbaud made.
