To mark the 50th anniversary, Francis Ford Coppola’s (The Godfather) seminal neo-noir thriller, The Conversation, returns to the big screen in a brand-new 4K restoration.

Harry Caul (Gene Hackman), a detached and paranoid surveillance expert who finds himself becoming a victim of the same modern technology he uses to destroy others. It begins with a seemingly routine job trailing an unfaithful wife and her lover. But when Harry visits the husband’s office to deliver the incriminating tapes he’s made of the couple, his client’s assistant tries to intercept him. Harry refuses to hand over the recordings and suddenly discovers that he may have captured a conversation about something that’s a lot more important than adulterous goings on.

Reported to be Coppola’s favourite of his films, The Conversation boasts an exceptional cast that includes Hackman, John Cazale, Allen Garfield, Frederic Forrest, Cindy Williams and Michael Higgins as well as featuring a notable early performance from Harrison Ford.

To celebrate this restoration we are dedicating July to the art of noir and the detectives at the centre of them. Inspect QFT Noir here.
