Bob le Flambeur, dir Jean-Pierre Melville, 1956

Bob le Flambeur

4 Dec 200919 Dec 2009

A worn-out gambler who spends his nights haunting the underworld of back-room games, Bob is a Montmartre legend whose style is so cool and whose gallantry so charming that even the police respect him. But Bob is on a losing streak… Imbued with director Melville’s affection for American gangster movies, this Jarmusch favourite combines the laconic quality of the genre with a freshness that makes it a precursor of the French new wave.

dir Jean-Pierre Melville, France 1956, 98 minutes, 35mm
