Made with enthusiasm and audacity, it still seems fresh.
Often overlooked, Truffaut's wonderful second film stars Charles Aznavour, master of the chanson, in his only collaboration with the director.
A distinctively postwar Parisian creation, coldblooded and sentimental and wounded and whimsical, all at the same time.
Truffaut leaves too much that is not clear as he concentrates on individual scenes.
Universally considered a masterpiece of the film noir genre.
The determined jollity of Georges Delerue's saloon piano score, which later opens up to encompass a wide world of romanticism, sets the tone for Francois Truffaut's audacious second feature, made in 1960.
It's an exciting film, a film in which you feel the director in every moment, in the jerky, jazzy, throwaway style and the tough, semi-private language, and in the particular brand of sharp good humour, off-savoury rather than exactly 'bitter.
A superb combination of genre movie and Truffaut's special brand of perfectly observed, humanist detail.
The film allowed Truffaut to express his love of American hardboiled fiction and classic Hollywood cinema in all its romantic glory.
One of those rare movies that you're sorry to see end.
It's my favorite Truffaut film, not because it's the best but because it's the most enjoyable.
A landmark film that took the world three decades to accept
Applying all the techniques from the French New Wave, Truffaut's 'Shoot the Piano Player' combines unique wit and thrills that coerce into a solidly original work.
A second from François Truffaut, Shoot The Piano Player boldly shoots how the past haunts the present and shall continuously pester the future. Crime, drama, romance, and mystery right on target.
A heavily noir influenced crime drama about the inability to escape your past. For only his second feature, this film feels bold and mature. While it is much more stylized than his debut, it still retains a lot of the heart that made the 400 Blows so good.
at this point, this is probably my favorite of truffaut's films. a simple structure, but laid out without the gimmicks normally seen in films like this. well written and well shot, the film simply executes the story with no wasted time. excellent crime drama.
