Movie #57 Shoot the Piano Player

(1960, France, d. Francois Truffaut)

Truffaut is almost always a sure shot to get a great film going, especially when that film happens to be in the crime genre. There are some great moments in the film – driving on the escape route, the wife’s suicide, carrying the body of Charlie through the alleys  – that will definitely stick. A master of the French New Wave cinema, Truffaut blends genres, tones, and emotions in this pastiche of action and sentimental dialogue. It’s very easy to find inspiration here if you’re into classic films.
