Bad Seed

Mauvaise graine

France, 1934


Henry Pasquier, the spoiled son of a wealthy doctor, discovers high-octane thrills, jazz-era romance and a sense of purpose in life when he unwittingly falls into the company of an organized ring of car thieves—and falls for Jeannette, who works as car-bait for the gang.
