  • La Menace

    1977. France. Directed by Alain Corneau. Screenplay by Corneau, Daniel Boulanger, Claude Hopkins. Music by Gerry Mulligan. With Yves Montand, Carole Laure, Marie Dubois. A specialist in the French policier and a lifelong jazz enthusiast, Corneau teamed up with his favored actor Montand, cinematographer Pierre-William Glenn, and composer/saxophonist Gerry Mulligan for this suspenseful noir thriller about a love triangle that leads to a possible murder. Mulligan's symphonic score, arguably his best, is notable for its shifting tempos, melodic variations, and use of acoustic and electronic pianos and Moog synthesizers. In French; English subtitles. 117 min.
