This January and February sees Riverside celebrate some of the best of the French "Nouvelle Vague"- the New Wave films whose influence is felt on filmmaking to this day!
“Often overlooked, Truffaut's wonderful second film stars Charles Aznavour, master of the chanson, in his only collaboration with the director.”- Time Out ★★★★★
In a brilliant piece of casting, celebrated French chanteur Charles Aznavour stars in François Truffaut's whip-smart, scintillating second film – a combination of mischievous, tongue-in-cheek homage to American noir and effervescent, inventive Nouvelle Vague. Having left behind his life as a gifted concert pianist, Charlie sees out his downcast days tinkling the ivories in a dingy Parisian jazz bar.
One day, his brother Chico arrives, searching for sanctuary from a gang of crooks that he’s double-crossed. Charlie offers to help but soon finds his murky past catching up with him and before long is embroiled in an affair that he can no longer control.
