SYMPHONY FOR A MASSACRE

New 4K Restoration

aka THE CORRUPT [SYMPHONIE POUR UN MASSACRE]
This early crime story masterpiece from French director Jacques Deray (BORSALINO, LA PISCINE), co-written by Deray, Claude Sautet (CLASSES TOUS RISQUES, MAX AND THE JUNKMEN) and José Giovanni (LE TROU), recalls classic heists-gone-wrong films like RIFIFI, THE KILLING and THE ASPHALT JUNGLE. Five shady Parisian businessmen go in on a drug deal together, intending to launch a new criminal enterprise. But one of the gang is laying the complex groundwork to pull a double cross on his partners. The exquisite ensemble of veterans and genre greats includes Michel Auclair, Claude Dauphin, Jean Rochefort, Charles Vanel, Michèle Mercier and screenwriter José Giovanni, in his acting debut. The crisp cinematography is by Claude Renoir, with a moody score by cult composer Michel Magne. DIR/SCR Jacques Deray; SCR José Giovanni, Claude Sautet, from the novel by Alain Reynaud-Fourton; PROD Julien Derode. France/Italy, 1963, b&w, 115 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
