“Emphatically entertaining, provocatively self-assured." – David Wood, BBC.com
"Shows [Godard] at his most amusing, and that is no small thing." – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
In a dreary Paris suburb, Franz (Sami Frey) and Arthur (Claude Brasseur) don’t have money, jobs, or prospects, but they do have a black convertible and a shared romantic interest in Odile (Anna Karina). When Odile lets slip that a stash of cash is ineptly hidden in the isolated villa where she lives, the men hatch a plan to take it for themselves. Piece of cake, but then... A jeu d’esprit, with Godardian set pieces including the trio line-dancing “Le Madison” (later appropriated by Quentin Tarantino for Pulp Fiction) and then “doing” the Louvre in record time.
