Michel Poiccard is a small-time thief, he cheats taxi drivers and restaurants, he steals cars at every opportunity, he impulsively shoots a motorcycle policeman and he’s always looking for an easy way to make money. He met Patricia Fanchini in Nice and renews their relationship a few weeks later in Paris. She is an American girl studying journalism at the Sorbonne and unaware of Michel’s line of work.
This is probably a French classic movie, the beginning of this type of filming but there is a lot of rambling, smoking to fill time, not very much point and a slog to get to the ending. Seberg has very short hair but she spends more time fixing and working with it than something with long, thick and hard to manage hair? 3* (This movie is OK)
