Storyline

After the successful bank robbery Micky hopes to take back his girlfriend Mary who has been taken from him by the brothers Venin. On the way to Paris he meets one Leon, a neurotic and dreamer, whom he and his associates consider an idiot. Leon can hardly understand what Micky is up to but he follows him everywhere and soon falls in love with Mary. This strange love triangle resolves in a tragic ending. Strange it may seem but the credits tell us that "The film is inspired by Dostoyevsky's "The Idiot" and intended as a homage to the great writer". Written by Yuri German <blsidt1@imf.org>

Tcheky Karyo- modern day demented soul. He should do more French films.
15 June 2007 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Calling this film insane would be insulting the medium of cinema. No film can be deemed insane because the actual truth is that the real lunatics are all those human beings who are insane enough to call films insane. L'Amour braque is a hard to crack puzzle in the garb of an unintelligible film. It is a film which necessitates multiple viewing sessions in order to fathom its complexity. Of course, it is violent although there are various allusions to Dostoyevsky (people please remember Raskolnikov) All the credit for this film's hard to understand nature goes to an unusual down to earth Polish filmmaker based in Paris. Monsieur Andrzej Zulawski is a prolific filmmaker who often casts his girl friend Sophie Marceau in his films. She is a radiating beauty in this film too. There is more than meets the eye in the performance by Tcheky Karyo. L'Amour braque is a high commendable superior visual experience of honesty, richness and professionalism.
