Product Information

A 4K Restoration! From Jean-Pierre Melville, the legendary director of Le Doulas, Le Samurai, Army of Shadows and Un Flic. Suffused with wry humor, Bob Le Flambeau melds the toughness of American gangster films with Gallic sophistication to lay the roadmap for the French New Wave. As the neon is extinguished for another dawn, an aging gambler (Roger Duchesne) navigates the treacherous world of pimps, moneymen and naïve associates while plotting one last score—the heist of the Deauville casino. This underworld comedy of manners possesses all the formal beauty, finesse and treacherous allure of green baize. Boasting a wonderful screenplay by Melville and Augusta Le Breton (Raffia, Rizzio) and stunning black-and-white cinematography by Henri Decay (The 400 Blows, Purple Noon). Special Features: -Audio Commentary by Film Critic Nick Pinkerton Diary of a Villain - Documentary -Theatrical Trailer
