A well made, fifties-style movie about the Paris criminal circuit at the time. It provides us with a not-too-exiting police-story, mainly set in the Pigalle night clubs and at a horseracing track. Actors and actresses with names like Jean Murat, Anouk Ferjac and Claudine Dupuis deliver their adequate performance.
In retrospect, the main attraction of 'Paris clandestin' lies in the well transmitted flavor of the Paris entertainment from 1957. Time has been taken to shoot night club scenes, as well as the performance of a couple of French 'chansons'. It's a world long gone by now, but its nostalgic charm and leisure show off convincingly.
