SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER

CLASSIC

Directed by: François Truffaut / Scenario: François Truffaut / With: Charles Aznavour, Marie Dubois, Nicole Berger / Drama - 1h30 / Courtesy of LEV / French with hebrew subtitles

Shoot the Piano Player 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.
