A very dark film noir by the director of The Raven, Diaboliques, and The Wages Of Fear, this updated version of Abbe Prevost's “Manon Lescaut” stars 16-year-old Cecile Aubry as the luxury-craving young woman and Michel Auclair as the enslaved lover she drags through the brothels and black markets of post-war Paris and eventually tries to murder. A sordid story, told in flashbacks with considerable skill, and - for the time - an outspoken treatment of sexual love.
