Never before released in U.S. theaters, Claude Sautet's elegant and sophisticated crime drama stars the great Michel Piccoli as a Paris detective who poses as a wealthy banker to lure a petty crook and his gang into committing a bank robbery ... so that he can then catch them red-handed. But there's one thing the detective doesn't plan for: falling in love with his intended victim's beautiful moll (Romy Schneider).
Intro/discussion by Scott Foundas, chief film critic for Variety and former programmer for the Film Society of Lincoln Center (including FSLC's annual Rendez-vous with French Cinema series)
