NOIR CITY: HOLLYWOOD, 16TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF FILM NOIR
French-American Noir Double Feature!
TWO MEN IN MANHATTAN / RIFIFI
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Film Noir Foundation

The screening of TWO MEN IN MANHATTAN is part of our monthly series of treasures from the Cohen Film Collection.

Introduction by Eddie Muller of the Film Noir Foundation.
TWO MEN IN MANHATTAN
DEUX HOMMES DANS MANHATTAN
1959, Cohen Film, 84 min, France, Dir: Jean-Pierre Melville

When a French delegate to the United Nations vanishes into thin air, two French journalists comb nocturnal Manhattan in search of answers. Melville's obsession with the look and sound of American culture is given free rein in this jazzily directed homage to film noir and New York. In French and English with English subtitles.


RIFIFI
1955, Rialto Pictures, 122 min, France, Dir: Jules Dassin

Back from the pen, tough guy Jean Servais rejoins his cronies and freshly imported safecracker César the Milanese (Dassin himself, billed as Perlo Vita) for a little jewelry store smash-and-grab job - but Servais wants the whole works! The central heist is an edge-of-your-seat, 30-minute sequence without dialogue or music, so detailed that it provided a feasible blueprint for real-life pros. "A vivid exercise that more or less invented the idea of French film noir. ... For the French, RIFIFI had Hollywood pizzazz; for Americans, it had Continental sophistication. For both, it seemed to possess an authoritative naturalism." – J. Hoberman. "The best film noir I have ever seen. A marvel of skill and inventiveness." - François Truffaut. In French with English subtitles.
