PREVIEW FOR THE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL MOVIE - POLICE PYTHON 357
Filmmaker Alain Corneau occupies a unique place in French cinema. By himself,
he embodies the main genres of cinema: films noirs, detective stories, musicals,
adventure films and comedies. For this reason, the French Ministry of Foreign
Affairs is screening 6 of his films through the Alliances Francaises in India.
This festival is being jointly organized by the Alliance Francaise de Hyderabad
and the Hyderabad Film Club.
To fight gangsters, a non-conformist policeman creates a "parallel" squad that uses gang methods. He thus discovers the organizer of the kidnapping of 2 Mafia bosses using 2 phony policemen. In a new type of film noir, a cop turns gangsters' methods against themselves: torture and murder.
Direction: Alain Corneau
