LE SAMOURAÏ
1967, Janus Films, 101 min, France/Italy, Dir: Jean-Pierre Melville

Director Jean-Pierre Melville’s best-known film stars Alain Delon as uber-cool assassin Jeff Costello, roaming the nasty streets of Paris looking for the slugs who betrayed him. PULP FICTION, HEAT, THE KILLER - this is where neo-noir truly begins, in the film’s steely, artificial blues and grays, in the alien beauty of Delon’s hitman. “A prose poem of silences and gestures interrupted by the occasional crack of a gun and a whispery sigh.” - Manohla Dargis, L.A. Weekly.


In French with English subtitles. | Print courtesy of the Institut Français. Special thanks to the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
