Bob le flambeur
This film has no current screenings
The 1981 screening of Bob le flambeur at the 19th New York Film Festival marked many American filmgoers’ first exposure to Jean-Pierre Melville. His fourth feature, starring Roger Duchesne as a thief with a code of honor who envisions and executes a perfect plan to rob the casino in Deauville, marks the real beginning of what we have now come to think of as Melville’s world: a drily elegant network of interlocking movements and gestures between laconic gangsters, at once powered and haunted by American cinema. A Rialto Pictures release.
4K restoration from the interpositive, under the supervision of Studiocanal, with the support of the CNC.
