Melville et Cie. at the Brattle

While the HFA cinema is dark, The Brattle Theatre offers a preview of a much larger program that we will present this fall, Melville et Cie., a full retrospective of the revered French director Jean-Pierre Melville along with films by his contemporaries. This brief prologue highlights a number of recently restored titles including the brand new 4K of Melville’s influential stunner Le samouraï as well as stunning crime classics Le Trou, Classe tous risques and Le doulos with rarities Léon Morin, Priest and When You Read This Letter.
