Introduction by director Bertrand Tavernier.
RAZZIA SUR LA CHNOUF
1955, Kino Lorber, 105 min, France, Dir: Henri Decoin

Fresh from his success in TOUCHEZ PAS AU GRISBI, Jean Gabin plays a more mysterious character in director Henri Decoin’s adaptation of a novel by Auguste Le Breton (RIFIFI). Is he hard at work trying to streamline the Paris drug trade for his longtime boss (Marcel Dalio) or is he really in cahoots with the police? Featuring a dream cast of French noir specialists (Lino Ventura, Magali Noel, Lila Kedrova, Albert Rémy).


THE NIGHT AFFAIR
LE DESORDRE ET LA NUIT
1958, Pathé, 93 min, France, Dir: Gilles Grangier

Jean Gabin’s association with director Gilles Grangier reaches its peak in this brooding crime drama set in the underbelly of Parisian nightlife. He’s an inspector investigating the murder of a shady nightclub owner who, in the midst of the case, finds himself becoming involved with the comely young witness (Nadja Tiller), who turns out to be a drug addict - and who’s privy to the behind-the-scenes dirt between the owner and his mysterious wife (Danielle Darrieux).


Both films in French, German and English with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
