Sleazy low-life cafe. A woman stands behind the counter, a bottle of wine in her hand. In front of the counter, a man in an apron beats another with a spoon. A small woman with a violin walks arm in arm with a man in a white and red uniform, a man pushes a stout woman up to a window, and other vignettes of low life in Paris.
