Lamorisse's final film.
8 August 2000 | by (The Beach) – See all my reviews

Odd, boring movie about a man with angel wing implants who performs in the circus and uses his gift of flight to rob homes. Writer-director Albert Lamorisse's sixth and final film was the one and only mis-fire among his classic and brilliant films that usually told quiet and simple stories.
