Emmanuelle Riva x 3...

Alain Resnais' 1959 film "Hiroshima Mon Amour" rounds off a trio of films that I've watched starring Emmanuelle Riva

Continuing a thread of Alain Delon films available in a retrospective collection on Criterion Channel, I watched "Monsieur Klein"..

In "France" she portrays a glamorous news anchor and investigative reporter "France De Meur" with her own show..

For a long time Alain Delon was a name I associated with the Romanian Olympic gymnast Nadia Comăneci...

A Trio of Truffaut, 1957, 1972, 1973

"Subway" Dir: Luc Besson, 1985

The film opens with a furious breakneck car chase through Paris as Fred is being pursued by the gangster's henchmen..
