Set in Paris at the turn of the 19th Century, Casque d'Or follows the love affair between gangster's moll, Marie and reformed criminal Georges Manda. When mob boss, Félix Leca, takes an active interest in their affair, an underworld rivalry ensues leading to a treacherous and tragic end. Casque d'Or is a classic, poetic tale of doomed romance based on the true-life Leca-Manda scandal. Evoking the Belle Epoque period perfectly, Casque d'Or is considered a Becker masterpiece.
