Ciné-Club: “Détective” (1985), Jean-Luc Godard

December 4, 2019 · 7:30 pm · Rocky-Mathey Theater

Department of French and Italian

A mini-masterpiece, this is a cross between a ‘Grand Hotel’ for the 1980s and film noir: a crumbling Paris hotel houses four groups of people whose paths occasionally cross. One is the group around detective Terzieff, still trying to solve a murder of years ago; another is the entourage of boxer, Tiger Jones, in training with his manager; another is a couple on the verge of breaking up, and the last is the Mafia.
