Panique (1946)

Rated NR 90 min. 2017

"If I were an architect and I had to build a monument to the cinema," wrote Jean Renoir, "I would place a statue of Julien Duvivier above the entrance." Duvivier made 70 films between 1919 and 1967, many of them landmarks of French cinema. His first postwar project, a noir adaptation of Georges Simenon's Mr. Hire's Engagement, stars Michel Simon as a reviled voyeur framed for a murder by the girl he adores. Now widely considered the finest Simenon adaptation, the long-unseen PANIQUE has finally been given the vivid restoration it deserves.
