Duffy is a cunning aristocrat of criminals who is hired by Stefane, a young playboy, to hijack a boat carrying several million dollars of his father's fortune. The plot succeeds, with a little help from Segolene, Stefane's girlfriend - but also with an unexpected, sudden turn of events. Written by
This was a very hip, very funny movie. The plot zig-zags around in completely unexpected turns, and the dialog is full of off-beat humor that you really have to pay attention to get.
The photography is gorgeous as are the locales. It recreates the breezy easy-going style of the Sixties and the overall effect is like having a vacation on the Mediterranean.
