Ciné-Club: “Un flic” (1972), Jean-Pierre Melville

French Language Film Series

November 6, 2019 · 7:30 pm · Rocky-Mathey Theater

Department of French and Italian

Beginning with a remarkable bank robbery on a deserted beach front and also featuring a helicopter heist shot in real time, Un Flic is perhaps Jean-Pierre Melville’s most perfect synthesis of style and suspense. A wonderfully fatalistic study of loss and deception, and a distillation of Melville’s interest in the codes of loyalty and honor, the film marks a fitting epitaph to one of the finest careers in contemporary cinema.
