Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Un Homme Marche Dans la Ville was Italian director Marcello Pagliero's first production in his adopted country of France. Filmed on location in a grimy seaside village, the story concentrates on a pugnacious longshoreman named Jean (J. P. Kerien). While endeavoring to help a troublesome friend keep his job, Jean must also fend off the amorous assaults of Madeleine (Ginette Leclerc), his friend's wife. This volatile situation inevitably leads to tragedy -- and to a multitude of unexpected repercussions. Director Pagliero's creative use of natural sound effects will be lost to anyone seeing an English-dubbed print of Un Homme Marche Dans la Ville.
