19.11.19—00:00    Razzia sur la chnouf (Henri Decoin, 1955, 105’) KASKcinema

In Razzia sur la chnouf Henri le Nantais returns from the United States to put things in order in the Parisian drug (under)world. This hard French gangster film is a successful adaptation of Auguste Le Breton's 'novel policier' of the same name, who excelled in a 'cinematographic' style of writing and in the use of frivolous French slang (argot). Razzia sur la chnouf, however, is also indebted to the American film noir, which left a deep impression during this period. The film will be introduced by Daniel Biltereyst.
