Ciné-Club with Olivier Barrot: Quai des Orfèvres

October 25, 2016 @ 12:30 am - 3:00 pm

Join French TV personality Olivier Barrot for a true French ciné-club!
Presenting one film from each decade, from 1930s-1980s, Mr. Barrot takes you deep into the social and cultural contexts of the iconic French films that helped shape the 20th century.

Tue, Oct 25 : Quai des Orfèvres

Blacklisted for his daring “anti-French” masterpiece Le corbeau, Henri-Georges Clouzot returned to cinema four years later with the 1947 crime-fiction adaptation Quai des Orfèvres. Set within the vibrant dance halls and crime corridors of 1940s Paris, Quai des Orfèvres follows ambitious performer Jenny Lamour, her covetous husband Maurice Martineau, and their devoted confidante as they attempt to cover one another’s tracks when a sexually orgreish high-society acquaintance is murdered. Enter Inspector Antoine, whose seasoned instincts lead him down a circuitous path in this classic whodunit murder mystery.
