Young lovers on the run in Paris attempt to elude a number of sinister
characters. French new-wave filmmaker Claude Chabrol, appearing in a bizarre
role as a voyeur, is one of many in-jokes/references to Fuller's fascination
with European culture.
The film is structured as a chase yet has a tentative, fantasy matrix which
makes it the opposite of a realistic thriller. It's charming, personal,
tender and nihilistic all at the same time. Fuller fans may have some
trouble finding this rather obscure film, but it's well worth searching out.
