Screening:  Rififi (1955)

Director:  Jules Dassin

Plot:  Out of prison after a five-year stretch, jewel thief Tony (Jean Servais) turns down a quick job his friend Jo (Carl Mohner) offers him, until he discovers that his old girlfriend Mado (Marie Sabouret) has become the lover of local gangster Pierre Grutter (Marcel Lupovici) during Tony's absence. Expanding a minor smash-and-grab into a full-scale jewel heist, Tony and his crew appear to get away clean, but their actions after the job is completed threaten the lives of everyone involved.


ABOUT THE CLUB

The Friese-Greene Club is a small, informal members' club on a quiet soi in Bangkok's Sukhumvit area.  It's name comes from the British pioneer of motion pictures, William Friese-Greene.  The club was created to celebrate the film industry and bring together notable film-makers, students, advocates, enthusiasts, and anyone that likes great movies!  The club has nightly screenings of often rare and older films, also concentrating on themes that are institutional to the development of the film industry.  The three-floor club features a restuarant/bar, private sofas, and a real 9-seat cinema.  You're guaranteed to see something new at the club, and it is truly one of Bangkok's hidden gems.
