Truffaut later admitted that he was consciously trying to chart a new artistic direction with Shoot the Piano Player, in an attempt to avoid potential autobiographical typecasting arising from The making a film of an expanded narrative based on American crime writer David Goodis’s novel Down There (), he apparently wanted to move away from the personal context and display.

When Mr. Oscar Wilde was at a miners’ ball in Leadville he saw a notice over the piano to the following effect: “Please don’t shoot at the pianist, he is doing his best.” Mr. Oscar Wilde adds that, considering the amount of bad painting that shocks our eyes, and the quantity of bad music that tortures our ears, that was one of the best. The film Shoot the Piano Player helped his reputation as a writer in the 60s. However, his time not writing was consumed in the courts when he sued ABC over The Fugitive -- a show he was convinced was a ripoff of Dark Passage. The fight wasn't over if the show was based on the book, but more to do with the question of whether his story was in.

Shoot the Piano Player is a straightforward story of a man dealt a cruel hand of cards by Fate. The WOW!!. I have seen Tirez sur le pianiste by Francois Truffaut two or three times but I never bothered to check the writing credits, and didn't expect the book to be so much more devastating than the movie.4/5.

Shoot the Piano Player is a bittersweet and nerve-racking exploration of different kinds of loyalty: the kind a man owes his family, no matter how bad that family is; the kind a man owes a woman; and, ultimately, the loyalty he owes himself.

The result is a moody thriller that, like the best hard-boiled fiction, carries a moral depth charge/5(45). Shoot the Piano Player (French: Tirez sur le pianiste; UK title: Shoot the Pianist) is a French New Wave crime drama film directed by François Truffaut and starring Charles Aznavour as the titular pianist.

It is based on the novel Down There by David Goodis. Differences from novel. Background and writing. Filming by: Georges Delerue. For years I have avoided reading Shoot the Piano Player because the film by Truffaut is one of my favorites.

It hardly seemed fair to the book to try and read it when I liked the film so very much. It was a mistake to have waited. Shoot the Piano Player is a subtle and hard-hitting novel that goes beyond many of the expectations of a Noir thriller/5.
