French Film Festival: Le samouraï

Sun, Mar 10 / 7 pm
Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
1967, France, 101 min
French with English subtitles

Back by popular demand. In a career-defining performance, Alain Delon plays a contract killer with samurai instincts. A razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American gangster cinema and 1960s French pop culture — with a liberal dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology.


Alliance Française du Manitoba is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to teaching and promoting French and its diverse culture. For the 5th time, the Alliance Française’s French Film Festival, curated by Damien Ferland and Alan Nobili, will give Winnipeggers the opportunity to see a diverse selection of French feature-length movies.

Reviews

Le Samouraï was clearly a major influence on John Woo and Quentin Tarantino because of its overall look, sensibility and treatment of characters. Le Samouraï is a terrific film, at once a tense thriller and a fascinating character study...unforgettable.
