CASQUE D’OR d. Jacques Becker, 1953 + Recorded intro by film critic & historian Pamela Hutchinson (12 JAN 17:50) / Part of BIG SCREEN CLASSICS: THE FILMS IN TRUFFAUT’S LIFE at BFI Southbank.

“Unsurprisingly, Truffaut revered Jacques Becker, a former assistant to Renoir who made films of a similarly fluent lyricism and emotional complexity. This elegant blend of crime movie and love story, set in the Paris of the Impressionists, sees a carpenter (Sere Reggiani) incur the wrath of gangleader Félix (Claude Dauphin) when he courts Marie (Simone Signoret). Truffaut especially adored its casting, its narrative sophistication and its visual beauty.”
