Henry Silva is a police inspector. A gang of robbers killed his son and he is accused of having killed a police informer and is kicked out of the Department. He will have to do all by himself to discover the truth.
The action takes place in the fifties and it's where the movie belongs for it is an anachronism:this story of gangsters ,which fills its quota of revenge and code of honor ,has been seen by the average French (?) viewer a hundred times or more .Good actors such as Michel Constantin and Marcel Bozzuffi do what they can and they are commendable considering the limitations they were working under.Henry Silva ,after some brilliant movies in his native America ("the Mandchourian candidate" "the Bravados" notably) left in the late sixties for France and Italy where we was invariably cast as the sinister-looking villain,the shady person (see Deray's awful "L" Marginal" ).
Daniel Vigne 's movies is not truly wretched ,it's an undistinguished work which unfortunately came too late:it was not even a big success in France ,a country who had to put up with the whole Melville filmography by then.
