Film Details

New Digital Restoration!


France | 1946 | Julien Duvivier


The great Michel Simon (L’Atalante, Boudu Saved from Drowning) stars in the first film version of Georges Simenon’s 1933 crime novel Mr. Hire’s Engagement (remade in 1989 as Monsieur Hire). Simon plays a lonely misanthrope and voyeur, living in a suburb of Paris where he is widely disliked and distrusted, who is framed for a murder he didn’t commit. Part film noir, part tragic romance, this nasty thriller is a “near-perfect piece of film craftsmanship,” according to legendary film critic Pauline Kael. “[A] masterpiece…A joy to watch…Unforgettable.” –Village Voice (2017). Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 90 min.
