French singer Charles Aznavour stars in Truffaut’s tongue-in-cheek homage to American noir in this playful gangster movie.

Having left behind his life as a gifted concert pianist, Charlie Kohler (Charles Aznavour) now plays piano in a Parisian jazz bar.

One day his brother arrives at the bar asking Charlie to help him escape from two crooks who he has double-crossed and are now out for his blood.

Charlie offers to help but soon finds his murky past catching up with him and before long he is embroiled in an affair that he can no longer control.

In French with English subtitles
