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>

Insane and brilliant
15 August 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Yes, the movie is insane indeed. If you can get your hands on a copy, which is hard to find, you will be rewarded with witnessing a cinematic style that is unmatched in its manic intensity. Acting, camera work, editing, will leave you spinning. Violent, loud, orgasmic, insane. A good introduction to Zulawski's fascinating body of work.
