Two Men in Manhattan

Two Men in Manhattan

A Feature film by Jean-Pierre Melville

Produced by Alter Films

Release in France : 16/10/1959


    Delmas (Pierre Grasset) and Moreau (Jean-Pierre Melville), two French journalists, are on the trail of a story -- a French diplomat has disappeared from the U.N. for no apparent reason. As they wander through the city tracking down the reason for the disappearance, the journalists eventually discover that the diplomat has met with foul play. Now the two men have a serious disagreement. Delmas wants to take photos of what happened and use them to create sensational headlines and plenty of attention, but Moreau wants them both to cover up what they have found and bury what they know.
