Still image from the film Le Cercle Rouge

Police Captain Mattei is assigned to pick-up a dangerous criminal named Vogel and bring him back to Paris by night train. Vogel escapes and a manhunt across the region begins. In the meantime, another criminal (Alain Delon) is freed early from prison by a guard, who then offers him a ‘job.’ The two incidents are not coincidence and lead to the planning of a jewelry heist. Though flawed, Melville’s characters embody a romantic spirit of honor, loyalty, and tragic destiny as they play out their fate, which eventually circles back to Captain Mattei. In French with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
