Two Men in Manhattan

Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
Year: 1959
Country: France
Language: English and French with English subtitles

A French UN delegate has disappeared into thin air, sending reporter Moreau (Melville) and hard drinking photographer Delmas (Grasset) on an assignment to find him. Their only lead is a picture of three women. Set against a smoky jazz score and featuring stunning black and white cinematography that beautifully captures the gritty streets at night, this is director Melville’s love letter to New York City and homage to the American Film Noir.
