Storyline

Henri, the Man from Nantes, comes back to his country after a successful stay in the United States, where he was working for Liski, the drug dealer. With the fame of being a tough guy preceding him, he sets himself to the task of knowing why the French operations were not so profitable - and soon he is master of all links of the organization. He can now get it honed to perfection - or destroy it. Only... the Police is following his every step! Is Henri what he says he is, or an undercover detective from the French police?

Routine 50's noir
18 October 2004 | by bob998See all my reviews

Decoin started as a sports reporter, and there is much more of trying to describe the milieu of drug users than moving the story forward. Gabin does a good job playing the international criminal brought in to revamp a drug ring by the sleek, sinister Dalio. Albert Remy and Lino Ventura as the killers are appropriately thuggish. Magali Noel, with her adorable sloe-eyed look and sensual mouth, is Gabin's girl-friend. Fellini must have loved her, he used her in three pictures.

At about the 60 minute mark, the film goes badly off the rails with the arrival of Lila Kedrova's junkie character; we're shunted off to one louche bar after another (gay and lesbian thrills abound) in the search for drugs. You are left waiting impatiently for the final shoot-out that you are sure will happen.
