Ciné-Club: “Tirez sur le pianiste” (1960), François Truffaut

November 20, 2019 · 7:30 pm · Rocky-Mathey Theater

Department of French and Italian

Part thriller, part comedy, part tragedy, “Tirez sur le pianiste” relates the adventures of mild-mannered piano player Charlie (Charles Aznavour, in a triumph of hangdog deadpan) as he stumbles into the criminal underworld and a whirlwind love affair. Loaded with gags, guns, clowns, and thugs, this razor-sharp homage to the American gangster film is pure nouvelle vague.
