Paris: Euro International Film, 1970. Vintage French grande poster (affiche) for the 1970 French film noir.
Director Melville's twelfth film, his second in color, and probably his most ambitious, the culmination of many themes developed in his previous work, played out through the filter of the crime genre. A triumph of visual storytelling as well, with two stunning 30-minute sequences, at the beginning and end of the film respectively, played out with no dialogue whatsoever.
47 x 63 inches (119 x 160 cm). Rolled, on archival linen. Near Fine.
