Special Order – Not a Regularly Stocked Item – Sho
Add To Cart
Francois Truffaut is drunk on the possibilities of cinema in this, his most playful anarchic film. Part film noir, part comedy, part tragedy, this film relates the adventures of the mild-mannered piano player Charlie (Charles Aznavour) as he stumbles into the crimnal underworld and a whirlwind love affair. Loaded with gags, guns, clowns, and thugs, this razor-sharp homage to the American gangster film is pure nouvelle vague. Extras include commentary, interviews, excerpts from a 1965 French TV program dedicated to Truffaut, illustrated essay, screen test, theatrical trailer, new essay by film critic Kent Jones, and more.
