The title in English is usually translated as SHOOT THE PIANIST or SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER. But Elton John, back when he was really, really popular in the early seventies, released an album titled DON'T SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER. I'm guessing more English-speaking people have heard/heard of/owned the album than ever heard of/saw a relatively obscure French film.

I think you're right, your friends are wrong.
