Quand la femme s'en mêle AKA When a Woman Meddles (1957) - Yves Allégret
Maine, the girlfriend of a notorious gangster, Godot, receives an unexpected visit from her ex-husband and her daughter. At the time, Godot is in the midst of a gangland war with a rival gangster, and it becomes clear that Maine’s ex-husband himself has a few scores to settle…
This fairly standard crime thriller Yves Allégret has an exceptional cast, including Edwige Feuillère and Jean Servais. A young Alain Delon distinguishes himself in his first film role, playing the kind of character he would become most associated with in the following few decades.
