Shoot the Piano Player

From Wed 22 to Sun 26 May
Festivals & Series

François Truffaut is drunk on the possibilities of cinema in Shoot the Piano Player, his most playful film. Part thriller, part comedy, part tragedy, Shoot the Piano Player relates the adventures of mild-mannered piano player Charlie (Charles Aznavour) as he stumbles into the criminal 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 and one of Charles Aznavour’s best films.
