MAX ET LES FERRAILLEURS

This looks like a really cool French film.  New wave meets film noire?  Not sure, but let's give it a go.

(France/1971—directed by Claude Sautet) Never released in U.S. theaters until 2012, Claude Sautet’s elegant and sophisticated 1971 crime drama stars the great Michel Piccoli as Max, a Paris detective hell-bent on justice at any cost after watching one too many wily criminals slip through his fingers. Following a chance encounter with old Army buddy Abel, now working as a scrap collector (most of whose “scrap” just happens to be stolen), Max decides to lure him into committing a bank robbery with the goal of catching him red-handed. But there’s one thing the cold-hearted, hard-boiled Max doesn’t factor into his diabolical scheme: the possibility of falling in love with the high-class prostitute (Romy Schneider) who happens to be Abel’s lover. A taut thriller with the heart of a classic melodrama, Sautet’s masterpiece Max et les Ferrailleurs makes its belated arrival in American theaters in a restored 35mm color print featuring new English subtitles. In French with English subtitles. (107 min.)
