Shoot the Pianist

In a brilliant piece of casting, celebrated French chanteur Charles Aznavour stars in François Truffaut’s whip-smart, scintillating second film – a combination of mischievous, tongue-in-cheek homage to American noir and effervescent, inventive Nouvelle Vague. Based upon a novel by Noir fave David Goodis, it’s the shadowy tale of a lonely pianist with a dark past that he can’t manage to escape.
