Book cinema tickets for Un Flic


Opening with an unforgettable, atmospheric robbery scene, Melville's final film is a potent cat-and-mouse tale of thieves, informants and Un Flic (a cop), played by the peerless Alain Delon.

Tangled in a love triangle with his less-than-scrupulous acquaintance Simon (Richard Crenna) and the alluring Cathy (Catherine Deneuve), Delon's police chief Coleman is drawn deeper and deeper into the Paris underworld - despite his duty to bring it down and bring a gang of armed robbers to justice. For all its ambiguities, one thing is clear - life in the shadows will end in tragedy.

The Sat 30 Sep screening at 6.20pm will be introduced by Dr Pasquale Iannone (University of Edinburgh).
