Cine: Bob le flambeur (Bob the Gambler)
Showing Wednesday 30 November only
As the ageing, broke, and broken gambler who decides to make one last bid for financial security by robbing a casino, Bob is the archetypal noir hero – a world-weary urban loner. Yet as soon as he’s established this character, Melville breaks with convention, showing us the soft underbelly of this hardboiled hero through his relationships with young sidekick Paolo, damsel in distress Ana, and police inspector Ledru.
