The Info List - Les Trottoirs De Bangkok

Les Trottoirs des Bangkok (English title: The Sidewalks of Bangkok) is a 1984 film directed by Jean Rollin. The film was inspired by the 1932 Boris Karloff
Boris Karloff
classic The Mask of Fu Manchu. In contrast to Rollin's usual themes of vampires, dream-like atmosphere and crumbling chateaus, Les Trottoirs des Bangkok mixes themes of adventure, crime and mystery with comic book dialogue, while still featuring naked women and sex, which his films were known for.[1]

Plot[edit] Rick, a French secret service agent, is shot and killed. His friend Jacques retrieves Rick's camera, which contains shots of a young woman named Eva. The secret service concludes that she possesses the item Rick was killed for, a deadly substance that would kill an entire city if released. The secret service fly back to Bangkok to search for Eva, who works in a local brothel. Two women break into the secret service apartment, kill a man and retrieve the film canister; these women work for an evil syndicate which is run by a lady who is also in search of Eva. Since the secret service cannot afford to fly out to Paris, the syndicate get to Eva first. Eva is helped by Claudine, another woman who works for the syndicate, who tries to arrange for Eva to be taken away on board a cargo ship and smuggled into France. Claudine arranges the murder of a French secret service agent and poses as the dead agent's wife when Agent Roger arrives. She takes him to the nightclub, where they pretend that Eva is nowhere to be found. During this visit, the film and its nature are revealed. Claudine tries to protect Eva, but they are captured by the syndicate. Eva is chained up and whipped. Claudine tries to save her but is killed. It turns out that Rick was not murdered after all. He shows up to rescue Eva, killing everyone, then tells Eva that he must kill her too. Eva overpowers him and kills him instead. Cast[edit]
