Bertrand Tavernier in 'Round Midnight

'Round Midnight

1986 R

In this moody drama, Gallic bebop buff Francis Borler (François Cluzet) befriends self-destructive jazz great Dale Turner (Dexter Gordon), an American expatriate who left seeking a more progressive audience. Addiction has taken its toll on the gifted saxophonist, but Borler's small acts of compassion spark a renewed -- if fleeting -- zest in the jaded performer, which is echoed in his music. Herbie Hancock's original score bagged an Oscar.
