French Noir Collection 11/19/22

Gaumont-Kino Lorber

Hungry for those wet Parisian streets, the city lights, and cadavres en lambeaux in the pale moonight?  Enter three highly atmospheric, star-studded Crime Noirs, one of which is an stealth classic of Gallic Pulp. Stars Jean Gabin, Jeanne Moreau, Lino Ventura, Marcel Bozzuffi, Gérard Oury, Sandra Milo, and Annie Girardot bring the tales of à sang froid malice and mayhem to life. The films featured are Gilles Grangier’s Speaking of Murder (Le rouge est mis) and Édouard Molinaro’s Back to the Wall (Le dos au mur) and Witness in the City(Un Témoin dans la ville). Beware of French husbands when cucklolded — they show no pity.  Bonne chance, victimes! On Blu-ray from Gaumont/Kino Lorber.
