A shy, former classical pianist takes a job working in a dive after the death of his wife. Instead of escaping his past and disappearing from life, he becomes increasingly drawn into the activities of the bar’s denizens including femmes fatales and low-life gangsters. Director Francois Truffaut’s comedy-drama is a blatant homage to American gangster films. The movie is shot in beautiful black and white with impressive camera techniques and editing, hallmarks of French New Wave cinema.
