Deux hommes dans Manhattan / Two Men in Manhattan (1959) Blu-Ray
A French United Nations delegate goes missing, and it's up to two French journalists named Moreau (Melville himself, in his only lead role) and Pierre (Pierre Grasset, Rififi) to find him. So begins a series of Chandleresque encounters with a variety of colorful characters—crooks, prostitutes, actresses, businessmen, politicians and so on—as the reporters come closer and closer to unraveling the truth behind this mysterious situation. It's a straightforward tale that should feel charmingly familiar to fans of film noir.
