nice atmosphere
20 March 2009 | by wvisser-leusdenSee all my reviews

"Quai de Grenelle" is the name of a street in Paris, making the set of this film. Although I do not think it ranks among France's greatest, "Grenelle" makes a good watch.

Its plot deals with a though guy on the run for the police. The use of snakes provides an original twist. Its main roles, by the young and rising stars of Henri Vidal and Francoise Arnoul, are acted out convincingly.

"Grenelle's" greatest attraction, however, is its charming touch of the atmosphere of Paris in 1950. Focusing on common neighborhoods without much glamor, this visual approach often makes you part of the scene.
