‘Monsieur Hire’

Also showing on Saturday, August 17, at 9:00 pm.

Part of the Cine-Simenon series at the Anthology Film Archives.

Based on The Engagement, published in the NYRB Classics series, this gritty film by Patrice Laconte follows the ne’er-do-well M. Hire, a tailor and peeping Tom, after his neighbor discovers that she is the object of his obsession. This is a fantastic treatment of an oddly sympathetic protagonist.
