In Razzia sur la chnouf Henri le Nantais returns from the United States to put things in order in the Parisian drug (under)world. This hard French gangster film is a successful adaptation of Auguste Le Breton's 'novel policier' of the same name, who excelled in a 'cinematographic' style of writing and in the use of frivolous French slang (argot). Razzia sur la chnouf, however, is also indebted to the American film noir, which left a deep impression during this period. The film will be introduced by Daniel Biltereyst.
