One of director Jean-Michel Cadinot's best films, "Gamins de Paris" is an ambitious hardcore erotic production. Shot with the same quality film stock as is used for mainstream productions, this early 90's film offers a...展开coherent and enjoyable storyline, concerning a schoolboy who runs off to Paris after stealing some money from the father of one of his friends. The tale takes place in 1945, allowing the production to shine with fantastic and authentic clothing from that time. Actor Lucien Lebrun jumps a freight train headed towards Paris, the City of Lights, still dressed in his elegant school clothing, only to meet up with Elyas Ardini, who forcefully seduces, and then robs the younger guy, leaving him penniless. (Ardini was a Cadinot regular from this time, known for playing mean, dominant bully types.) Once in Paris, Lucien heads to the flat of his older sister, who is making her living as a prostitute. In fact it seems that everyone here is selling something, whether it be sex, or art, or a gold watch, even the street kids are bargaining with glass marbles!
