That's what Beaudelaire wrote in his eponymous poem.This is probably Jean-Pierre Mocky's best film .It's pleasant to review a good movie of a director who squandered his skills in lots and lots of unworthy films.
A man (played by Mocky himself) escapes from jail and takes a woman hostage .She is none other than the daughter of a corrupted politician .She falls in love with the fugitive and like him,she rebels against a society whose only value is dough.
The last scenes are among the French seventies' best depicting the folie à deux ,l'Amour Fou.Recommended
