Jean-Pierre Melville Centennial

December 1–9, 2017

Beloved French director Jean-Pierre Melville (1917–1973) was best known for his cool, noir-inspired gangster films and political thrillers about the French Resistance. To commemorate the centenary of his birth, cinemas around the world are screening Melville’s films to be discovered and rediscovered by film lovers. MFA Film joins the celebration with six of his iconic works: Bob le flambeur (1956), Léon Morin, Priest (1961), Le doulos (1963), Army of Shadows (1969), Le cercle rouge (1970), and his last film, the icy thriller Un flic (1972), with Alain Delon and Catherine Deneuve.
