On Thursday, January 24th at 7:30 p.m. The Avon Theatre and The Alliance Francaise of Greenwich present MAX AND THE JUNKMEN.

Never before released in U.S. theaters, Claude Sautet’s elegant and sophisticated crime drama stars the great Michel Piccoli as Max, a Paris detective hellbent on justice at any cost after watching one too many wily criminals slip through his fingers.

Following a chance encounter with Abel (Bernard Fresson), an Army buddy now working as a scrap collector (most of whose “scrap” just happens to be stolen), Max decides to lure Abel and his gang into committing a bank robbery ... so that he can then catch them red-handed.

So Max poses as a wealthy banker and begins a series of illicit rendezvous with the high-class prostitute Lily (Romy Schneider), who happens to be Abel’s girlfriend, carefully dropping hints about a bank that’s just waiting to be knocked over.

But there’s one thing the cold-hearted Max doesn’t factor into his diabolical scheme: the possibility of falling in love. A taut thriller with the heart of a great melodrama, MAX AND THE JUNKMEN makes its belated arrival in American theaters in a restored 35mm print featuring new English subtitles by Lenny Borger. In French with English subtitles | 107 minutes.

Ticket prices are as follows: Carte Blanche Members: FREE, Avon & AFG Members: $6, Students & Seniors: $8, Nonmembers: $11. Call the Avon business office at 203-661-0321 or the box office at 203-967-3660, x2 for tickets.
