René Barjavel, Julien Duvivier Stars: Jean-Pierre Léaud, Monique Brienne, Pierre Mondy

Jojo lives in the attic of an aparment building in Pigalle. He left home after realizing his stepmother never liked him. Among his many neighbors is gorgeous Jenny Dorr, a nightclub dancer, whose lover he dreams of becoming one day. But since Jojo's only sixteen years old, Jenny's shown herself to be kind and motherly, but nothing more. Worse, she's Dicky's lover, a mediocre boxer who spends a good deal of his time loafing in Pigalle's cafes. Jojo, on the other hand, has no income and must absolutely find work; especially as he's been wooing Marietta, another neighbor and a young lady more suited to his age. Selling magazines helps (for a while); but posing as Narcissus for two gay artists proves to be a disaster. When things start going really badly for Jojo, the boy tries to commit suicide by jumping off the roof of the apartment building.

 DVD-R is in French with switchable English, French and Spanish subtitles. Approx. 91 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
