Cinema with the Accent on Noir   

Come and delve into four international films that dwell on the dark side of the street, where ambiguity and disillusionment dwell.

1. "Purple Noon" - France, 1960: The classic noir from the novels by Patricia Highsmith that spawned an international franchise. Tom Ripley is a talented mimic, moocher, forger, and all-around criminal improviser, but there's more to Tom Ripley than even he can guess.

2. "Monsieur Hire" - France, 1989: Monsieur Hire is a maladjusted, balding, middle-aged man living in France. He doesn't like to talk to people. A young woman is murdered, and a police detective suspects M. Hire just because his neighbors think he is strange.

3. "A Man Escaped" - France, 1956: A captured French Resistance fighter during World War II engineers a daunting escape from a German prison in France.

4. "The Invisible Witness" - Italy, 2018: Adriano Doria is "the entrepreneur of the year" in Milan. He drives a BMW, wears a flamboyant Rolex, has an adorable wife and daughter, and a beautiful mistress. But now he is under house arrest, accused of murder.
