Le Samourai film screening Detroit

The amazing French crime film ‘Le Samouraï‘ (1967) will be screening in Detroit.

In a career-defining performance, Alain Delon plays Jef Costello, a modern contract killer with samurai instincts. After carrying out a brilliantly planned hit, Jef finds himself caught between a persistent police investigator and a ruthless employer.

Le Samouraï is both a magnificently stylized masterpiece of elegant cool, and a razor-sharp blend of suspenseful American-style gangster cinema and 1960s French pop culture, with a healthy dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology.

This is a tremendous film written and directed by Jean-Pierre Melville.

Stunning new 4K restoration was lovingly created from the original 35mm camera negative. In French with English subtitles. (105 min.)
