Police Report of Mugging
A model citizen finds a coin on the street that turns out to be forged. He uses it to play dice in a tavern and makes a tidy sum. As he flees from two hoodlums who would like to relieve him of his winnings, he somehow ends up with a prostitute whose pimp is also after his money. Fleeing back to the street, he falls into the hands of the hoodlums… The censor’s office regarded this social satire, shot in avant-garde style, as nothing more than a "crime film" that "due to its accumulated brutality and harsh acts was likely to have a lowering and deadening effect". It banned the film.
