Lift to the Scaffold

Ascenseur pour l’échafaud

Louis Malle gives us a stylish, jazz-tinged thriller about being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

France 1958
Dir Louis Malle
With Maurice Ronet, Jeanne Moreau, Georges Poujouly, Lino Ventura
English subtitles
Certificate PG

An ex-soldier (Ronet) and his lover (Moreau) plot the perfect murder of her husband, but things don’t quite go to plan as another couple unwittingly get in on the act. Conceived with clockwork precision and featuring a memorably moody soundtrack by Miles Davis, Malle’s thriller pushes poor timing and bad luck to the max. Incredibly ingenious and stylish.
