neo-noir archery

Archery as plot-device in neo-noir revenge thriller? The Bride Wore Black (La Mariée était en noir) is a 1968 French film directed by François Truffaut. “It is a revenge film in which five men make a young bride a widow on her wedding day. She takes her revenge, methodically killing each of the five men using various methods.” Probably not one of his best, but hey.  You can watch an edited clip of it, where the lead Jeanne Moreau turns up at the home of an artist, and he thinks she’s been sent from the model agency, right here (7 mins). Sorry, no English subs, but you’ll figure it out.

Thanks to Rob Galo.
