The law of the streets
AUGUSTE LE BRETON, author of Rififi-a sensation when filmed-makes another shattering impact with this vicious story of the underworld of Paris.
Two young thugs, YVES TREGUIER and LA GLACE, live the violent life of the backstreets where the gun and the razor are the only passports to survival.
This brilliant thriller tells of crime and passion, murder and revenge-but not without a strange tenderness.
'...convincing study of loyalties in the lower depths, lots of violence, and a seedily authentic rouges' gallery'.
