In 2017, TIFF Cinematheque revives its tradition of "Summer in France" with retrospectives on Jean-Pierre Melville and Olivier Assayas and a French Crime films series.

"Spend a summer of panique and crimes passionnels in the company of hired killers, femmes fatales, mad scientists, identity thieves and assorted assassins, kidnappers, and larcenists casting their trench-coated shadows in the seedy quartiers, shabby casinos, and fog-enshrouded streets of postwar France. This stellar selection of classic crime films, several in new or restored prints, features such celebrated directors as Jean-Luc Godard, Julien Duvivier, Claude Chabrol, Georges Franju, François Truffaut, Louis Malle, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Jacques Becker and Jules Dassin, and a gallery of leading stars (Alain Delon, Jean Gabin, Jeanne Moreau, Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Michel Piccoli, Romy Schneider, Lino Ventura et al.). Extending from the bleak poetics of the ’30s and ’40s through the ironic, affectionate genre play of the New Wave in the ’60s to the cinéma du look extravagance of Jean-Jacques Beineix, the sardonic cynicism of Henri-Georges Clouzot and the moral ambiguities of Claude Sautet, Panique brings a bracing chill to the season of soaring temperatures — dripping with sang froid and frissons, it’s cinematic A/C, Gallic style."
- James Quandt, Senior Programmer, TIFF Cinematheque
