Porte des Lilas (English: Gate of Lilacs) is a 1957 French-Italian dramatic film directed by René Clair, based on René Fallet's novel La Grande Ceinture. The film is known as both Gates of Lilacs and The Gates of Paris, but was released under the latter title in the United States.[1]

Artiste is an unemployed impoverished man who dwells in his own, derelict house with his likewise unemployed best friend Juju. One day they come across the wanted criminal Barbier hiding in their home. Juju admires the threefold murderer, yet when he witnesses him bragging about having compromised a girl for financial benefit, his feelings turn straight into the opposite and he shoots Barbier dead.
