BOB LE FLAMBEUR

1955, JEAN-PIERRE MELVILLE, FRANCE, 98 MIN. WITH ROGER DUCHESNE, ISABELLE COREY.

New 4K restoration!

«Delightful...a very funny, jaunty movie.» — Vincent Canby, The New York Times

«A wonderful movie with all the formal beauty, finesse and treacherous allure of green baize.» — Chris Peachment, Time Out London

Cult director Melville (LE SAMOURAÏ, ARMY OF SHADOWS) made his first foray into the crime genre with this New Wave prototype (later remade by Neil Jordan as THE GOOD THIEF) that turns the doom-laden fatalism of film noir into a playful, jazzlike riff where style is everything, whether it be the freewheeling camera work of Henri Decaë (JULES AND JIM), the Bogartesque cool of hero Bob Le Flambeur (“Bob the High Roller”), or the insouciant eroticism of the sex kitten (Corey) he gallantly shelters. The silver-haired, trench-coated Bob is a former thief turned gambler, but a long losing streak tempts him to take a crack at a fat safe in a seaside casino. In French with English subtitles. New 4K digital restoration.
