MAX ET LES FERRAILLEURS

Friday, April 26, 2013 – Sunday, April 28, 2013


(France/1971—directed by Claude Sautet) Never released in U.S. theaters until 2012, Claude Sautet’s elegant and sophisticated 1971 crime drama stars the great Michel Piccoli as Max, a Paris detective hell-bent on justice at any cost after watching one too many wily criminals slip through his fingers. Following a chance encounter with old Army buddy Abel, now working as a scrap collector (most of whose “scrap” just happens to be stolen), Max decides to lure him into committing a bank robbery with the goal of catching him red-handed. But there’s one thing the cold-hearted, hard-boiled Max doesn’t factor into his diabolical scheme: the possibility of falling in love with the high-class prostitute (Romy Schneider) who happens to be Abel’s lover. A taut thriller with the heart of a classic melodrama, Sautet’s masterpiece Max et les Ferrailleurs makes its belated arrival in American theaters in a restored 35mm color print featuring new English subtitles. In French with English subtitles. (107 min.)  
 
“A gleefully seedy crime thriller about lowlifes on both sides of the law, all the more remarkable for having been overlooked on this side of the Atlantic.” –Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York
