Synopsis

French black comedy in which a crime of passion goes horribly wrong when the killer gets trapped in a lift. As Julien (Maurice Ronet)'s lover, Florence Carala (Jeanne Moreau) - who also happens to be the victim's wife - is out searching for him in Paris, a young hood and his girl steal the killer's car, complicating matters further. This was Louis Malle's first film as director and it partly set the tone for the 'new wave' to come. It is also notable for its famous jazz score, improvised in one night by Miles Davis while the film was being projected.
