Incredibly good little gem
7 August 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

If you crave for French dramas or crime movies with Paris By Night - Pigalle - atmosphere and settings, this film is definitely for you. Of course, in the fifties and early sixties, this was the common kind of features, mostly spoken in slang, French slang. Novels were the same. When you see this film, you can't prevent to think about Auguste Le Breton or Albert Simonin. It was actually adapted from Francis Carco, a sort or literary relative of Le Breton and Simonin. Cafés, night-clubs, wet streets after dark, tough gangsters, prostitutes and their sympathetic pimps, nothing is missing in this very rare film which I have in my collection since a decade now. An interesting tale about cowardice, with the just late Jeanne Moreau in her early movies.

Worth watching.
