Synopsis by Hal Erickson

A deadly vendetta motivates the plot of Les Violents. Fernand Ledoux plays a young Frenchman who has lived for many years in the U.S. Ledoux returns to his homeland to exact vengeance on the people he holds responsible for the death of his father. Three murders later, police inspector Paul Meurisse arrests the hot-headed protagonist. An open and shut case? Not likely: the inspector suspects that Ledoux is being set up as a fall guy for a very clever killer -- and the inspector is right on the money! Les Violents was released in the U.S. by United Artists.
