French Cinema, Wine & Conversation: Le Doulos (1962) | Polk Gulch
To help non-French speakers discover French cinema, The Alliance Française of San Francisco is offering a weekly Tuesday night class centered around a French film and conversation.
The class will take place in their cozy theater with free wine, refreshments and popcorn all for a $5 donation at the door.
Don’t know French? Don’t worry… all films are screened with English subtitles, and includes a brief talk and discussion about the film.
Le 23 octobre – Starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Le Doulos (1962) is based on a novel by Pierre Lescou. While the film comes before Melville’s masterpieces of the genre, Le Samouraï (1967) and Le Cercle Rouge (1970), one can unmistakably observe several of Melville’s trademark techniques in this film. Intertitles at the beginning of the film explain that its title refers both to a kind of hat, and to the slang term for a police informer.
*$5 suggested donation includes movie, wine & popcorn
This event is scheduled every Tuesday:
