  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    Une oeuvre qui se veut un hommage aux films noirs américains que François Truffaut vénérait d'une façon inconditionnelle, qui ne fut jamais à la hauteur de son ambition et a pris un indécrottable coup de vieillesse... www.cinefiches.com

  5. James Mackin's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    It's a lot of fun, lots of easygoing conversations between hostages and kidnappees.

  6. Walker's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    This might actually be my favorite Truffaut film. So charming. The soundtrack is also excellent.

  7. João R's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    Compelling to watch such delicate, reflexive and thorough direction giving life to an apparent criminal cat-and-mouse storyline. There, it continues to engage through the dreams and hopes of Charlie. However, it knows what it wants to be about but has a hard time focusing throughout.

  9. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    I never expected this movie to be as traditional / reactionary as it is. It has to be something of an hommage to classical Hollywood, because I can't see anything remotely camera stylo. That being said it is lavishly shot and very entertaining.

    "Si les cons volaient, il serait l'escardrille" HAHA

  12. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    Truffaut is a filmmaker with a great sense of style and movie making in general, and it shows in his composition, pacing, and all around direction of this magnificently filmed noir. It is made with a confident grip on the craft at hand, showing that Truffaut is virtuoso auteur who knows how to wield a camera to evoke that intangible feeling of cinema itself.

  13. GarfieldHawke's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    A surprisingly gripping journey, with an incredibly wide range of emotions that are well balanced. Gracefully flows at a fast pace.

  14. vxpl's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    Just perfect! Loved the cinematography, the characters, the actors, the monologues. The first 20mins are just spectacular. The ending is crazy. The kidnappers are so amusing and silly. The main character is lovable and his women so diverse.

  15. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    This is my favorite Truffaut film. Aznavour is so soulful. Marie Dubois and Delerue's score compliment him beautifully.

  16. SpacePirate's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    Great early Truffaut, just a notch below Jules and Jim and 400 blows. 4.5 stars

  17. Muraki's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    one of my favorite comedies.

  18. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    Forget Jules et Jim this is Truffaut's masterpiece. Funny. Sad. Post modern.

  19. courtneylesueur's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    A bit of everything- romance, thriller, film noir, tragedy, comedy. It's a great film, and the scene in the snow is one of the most tense I've ever seen. "If I'm lying, may my mother keel over this instant"

  20. Kotryna's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

  21. correy baldwin's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    Not Truffault's best, but delightful regardless.

  22. Jimmi HRS's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    The perfect balance between exuberance and seriousness. Truffaut effortlessly jumps between comedy, film noir, drama and romance. With lots of beautiful, engaging shots and jump cuts that really break up the pace of the film in an dramatic way. A truly flawless example of French New Wave Cinema.

  23. Dombl's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    A very rapid movie in which Truffaut plays the piano of cinematic tools. Full of great ideas!

  24. tsiulang's rating of the film Shoot the Piano Player

    The closest to Godard's cinematography.
