A fine Noir following a formulaic American style!!!
How we can reject a movie with powerful casting as Jean Gabin, Lino Ventura, Marcel Dalio, Lila kedrova just named a few them, although surprise me when I saw the hero Jean Gabin playing Henri a dealer drugs, I have confess that stayed bothered, but it's just a movie, He is French who worked for a Italian mob at America and was back after be absent for ten years, he reach at Paris always track down by Police, he is invited by the unknown Boss Paul Liski (Marcel Dalio) to manage the whole operation of heroine on France, since the early process until supplying the market with dozen dealers, having a front restaurant to misleading the police, he has two Hitmen Roger (Lino Ventura) and Bibi (Albert Rémy) as second-in-command on the gang for erase sporadic cases of insubordination or misappropriation of drugs, a journey at underworld of the drugs, this picture is blatant reproduction of American Noir, Henri has a young beauty cashier on Restaurant , soon both are involved in an affair, an American routine on Noir pictures, also the gangsters as well, fits on biotype unappealable Yankee style, the twist on the final is great although following the formulaic American noir, how we expect with Gabin & Ventura Together???
