In 1930 Marseille two small-time crooks join forces when they meet brawling over a woman. Starting with fixed horse races and fights, they start to find themselves doing jobs for the local gangster bosses. Starring two icons of French cinema, Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jacques Deray signs one of his most praised gangster films giving him the status of master of Noir.
The screening on Sun 18 February will be introduced by film critic and programmer Roberto Oggiano and followed by a relaxed, collective discussion with the audience, as part of our film club, Finally Sunday. No booking is necessary (it’s free to attend), you just need to buy a ticket to the film.
