Jean-Pierre Melville: Le samouraï

Thu, Jan 10 / 7 pm
Sun, Jan 20 / 7 pm
Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
1967, France, 101 min
French with English subtitles

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.


The Jean-Pierre Melville Retrospective is presented in partnership with the Alliance Française du Manitoba, Institut Français, Cultural Services of the French Embassy in Canada, and the Jean-Pierre Melville Foundation.

            

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.
