    1960. France. Directed by Francois Truffaut. With Charles Aznavour, Marie Dubois, Nicole Berger, Michelle Mercier. Truffaut’s adaptation of David Goodis’s Down There pays charming tribute to—and parodies—Hollywood gangster films. As critic Dudley Andrew says, however, “beyond parody, its sincerity is the love Truffaut feels for the movies.” In French; English subtitles. 80 min.
