THE BURGLARS/PEUR SUR LA VILLE
This simmering French crime film is based on the novel "The Burglar" by David Goodis, which was filmed previously in the U.S. in 1957. The French always seemed to have a handle on Goodis, and this exciting adaptation is ample proof! An airtight caper with a fantastic car chase; what more could anyone possibly want? NOT AVAILABLE ON DVD. Starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Omar Sharif, and Dyan Cannon. Directed by Henri Verneuil. In COLOR. 35mm. 120 mins. 1971. FRANCE. Wednesday at 8:00 only!
PEUR SUR LA VILLE (aka Night Caller / Fear Over the City)
One of the best European thrillers of the 1970s, styled along the lines of BULLITT and THE FRENCH CONNECTION, this one charts its own path: a briskly paced crime story which manages to be an interesting hybrid of polizier and giallo. PEUR SUR LA VILLE is a breathless excursion into the nocturnal trappings of international crime. NOT AVAILABLE ON DVD. Starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Charless Denner. Directed by Henri Verneuil. In COLOR. 35mm. 91 mins. 1975. FRANCE / ITALY. Wednesday at 6:10 and 10:15
