Taking place over the course of one restless Paris night, Louis Malle’s richly atmospheric crime thriller stars Jeanne Moreau and Maurice Ronet as lovers whose plan to murder her husband (his boss) goes awry, setting off a chain of events that seals their fate. Miles Davis’ pioneering jazz score is rightly famous, capturing the film’s exhilarating, recklessness and mournful moods of this early entry to the French New Wave movement.
