- What's your name?

- Anne.

Paulo... Anne.

My dream girl! If she just says yes,

her fortune's made.

Don't start! The kid's hungry.

Yvonne, hear that? The kid's hungry.

I'm a handsome guy, no?

You finished?

How can you starve with those eyes?

I thought dolls stacked like you

all had sugar daddies.

Well, I just found one.

Why're you hanging around


Don't you have a job?

I did. But not anymore.

- Why not?

- The boss wasn't my masculine ideal.

I'm her ideal!

What do you live on?

You always sleep alone?

Almost always.

Don't hang out in Montmartre, kid.

You'll end up a pavement princess.

Should a girl like you

be out till 5:
00 a.m.?


I saw you in Pigalle

with a Yank, eating fries.

I like fries.

What attracts you

to this neighborhood?

That's easy enough.

The lights. The big cars.

The music in the nightclubs.

The bubbly! Right?

See you again?

- Why not?

See you later.

- Your pal's nice.

- A nice little guy.

The check!

How much?

- Eighty.

What do we do now?


Time you went beddy-bye.

At your place?

- Got any money?

- Plenty. Three hundred francs.

Get a hotel room. 'Night, kid.

- Good night, Bob.

- 'Night, Yvonne.


You, wait outside!

So there you are!

Have a seat.

Now talk.

- I've nothing to say.


Then I'll bust you for procuring.

Know what a repeat offender's good for?

You're a dead duck.

But I'm working. I sell threads.

- To a certain Lydia?

- She's a girlfriend, Lieutenant!

You got a funny way with girlfriends.

I was in a bad mood.

Well, your moods are over.

Look at my tax form.

You can see I'm a working man.

You can't nail me as a pimp.

"Anyone who admits to living

with a prostitute is a procurer."

That's the new law, buddy!

Unless I...

- Unless...?

- I fix things.

Jean-Pierre Melville

Jean-Pierre Melville (French: [mɛlvil]; born Jean-Pierre Grumbach; 20 October 1917 – 2 August 1973) was a French filmmaker.

He kept it as his stage name once the war was over. Spiritual father of the French New Wave, he influenced the new generation of filmmakers in Asia (John Woo, Ringo Lam, Johnnie To, etc) and in America (Michael Mann, Quentin Tarantino, William Friedkin). more…
