96 minutes

A discreet thief and a frustrated teacher fall for each other and she follows him when he has to run away from the police. Sumptuously handled and photographed, this stylized combination of road-movie and romantic drama evoking Badlands or Breathless looks like two films awkwardly combined into one, but there's a real filmmaking talent shining underneath. The last performance by actor Guillaume Depardieu, who died in October 2008, after the shooting was completed.
