Le samouraï by Jean Pierre Melville (France, 1967, 104 min.) In French with English subtitles. 

The devilishly handsome Alain Delon plays Jeff Costello, a contract killer, in a career-defining performance in which not even the character's armor of fedora and trench coat can protect him.

"Le samouraï is a razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American gangster cinema and 1960s French pop culture—with a liberal dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology (...)." —Criterion
