Details

‘Flambeur’ is a French word for someone who wagers not only all the money that they have, but also the money that they do not. After a run of bad luck that leaves him completely broke, scrupulous ex-con Bob decides to rob a casino in Dauville in order to keep his place in the ‘demi-monde’ community. Everything is planned out meticulously, and Bob assembles a crack team for his perfectly envisioned crime, but fortune has different plans in this underworld comedy of manners. An early example of Melville’s noir genius, Bob le Flambeur lays the blueprints for his remarkable body of French New Wave cinema.
