The title Marchands de Filles translates to Girl Merchants. This doesn't mean that the characters are female businessmen. Far from it: the "protagonists" are the heads of a white slavery ring, "merchandising" girls to salacious customers. The plotline is the old one about the innocent young aspiring dancer who is sweet-talked into selling her sexual favors, only to be rescued from a Fate Worse Than Death But Better Than Starving by the timely arrival of the authorities. Agnes Laurent plays the imperiled heroine. Marchands de Filles contains a few rough scenes, but the film seems rather restrained when seen today.
