Two of French cinema’s great mavericks. Twenty-five years after it first aired, Labarthe went back to re-work his film on Melville. Shot while he was preparing Un flic, Melville carefully leads Labarthe through the trajectory of his career, from his daring debut The Silence of the Sea to his great successes of the 1960s, Le Samourai and Le Cercle rouge. Labarthe also details the development of the Melville myth: the dark glasses, the trenchcoats, the Ford Mustang, and his general tough-guy demeanor.
