This screening is part of retrospective series «Jean-Pierre Melville: Criminal Codes» — full schedule at siskelfilmcenter.org/melville

«This somber, repressive, and perverse work displays a ferocious moral and formal integrity.» — Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

A critical and commercial success, SECOND BREATH reignited Melville’s career after a three-year hiatus and consolidated the fusion of abstraction and mastery of detail that would characterize his late masterpieces (LE SAMOURAÏ, ARMY OF SHADOWS). After breaking out of a prison, old-school thief Gu (tough guy par excellence Ventura) finds his restaurant-owner sister under threat by the mob and himself under scrutiny by a wily police inspector (Meurisse). Gu needs money to flee the country, and opportunity knocks in the form of a daring platinum robbery. The opening prison escape and the highway-set heist rank among Melville’s greatest action set-pieces. In French with English subtitles. Archival 35mm print courtesy of the Institut Français.
