Witness in the City

Rating: 9/10

The third film in the French Noir blu-ray set is probably the best of the three. What’s so great about it is that it is that it sets itself up with a couple of plot switch-a-roos in which you think you are seeing a movie about a man getting away with murder until suddenly you’re not. Eventually, the story finds its way to a young couple and their romance in and around their jobs at a Paris taxi company. The place is filled with interesting background characters and a simmering dread as danger lurks nearby. By the time murder comes back in to the picture you are fully invested in the lives of the young couple and it earns its last 10 or so minutes of car chases through the darkened streets of Paris.
