Plot

LEtoile du Nord (film) movie scenes

On a ship in the 1930s sailing from Alexandria to Marseille, Edouard Binet, a French adventurer, meets Nemrod Loktum, a shady Egyptian businessman, and Sylvie Baron, a Belgian exotic dancer. Nemrod takes the Etoile du Nord train to Brussels, on which he is robbed and killed. Edouard then takes a room at the boarding house in Charleroi of Madame Baron, Sylvie’s mother, with bloodstained clothes and a lot of money that he hides. Despite the suspicions of her younger daughter Antoinette and the other lodgers, the frosty Madame Baron is gradually charmed by the suave Frenchman and believes his stories. The police learn of his presence and, after trial, he is sent to the infamous Ile de Re for transportation to the penal colonies. Madame Baron is among the grieving relatives who wave goodbye.
