Storyline

On the day Jean Gabin dies, a kidnaper who also takes a fortune in jewels heisted from Cartiers murders Simon Verini's wife. (Simon was fencing the jewels for a youthful gang who robbed Cartiers; he suspects them of the murder.) He's framed for the theft and spends ten years in prison, writing to his daughter, Marie-Sophie, who's 11 when he's sent away. Released, he reconnects to Marie-Sophie and to the young thieves, seeks revenge, and is quickly arrested again. She doesn't know what to make of her father, retreats to her Swiss fiancé, and is flummoxed when one of the young thieves falls for her. Is resolution possible when crime cuts across families and romance? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

lighter than a good souffl'e
6 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The director of 'A Man and a Woman' turns his attention toward the two passions closest to a Frenchman's heart (love and larceny) in a film that, in memory of his earlier hit, might have been called 'A Father and a Daughter'. The former is a dedicated family man and discriminating high class thief who loves his wife and daughter as much as his work; the latter is an adoring young woman who can't accept her father's vocation after he risks their security in a plot to avenge the death of his wife. The film marks yet another Old World spin on American B-movie conventions, in this instance more polished (and certainly more fluffy) than its nouvelle-vague prototypes, but with a surplus of Gallic whimsy and fatalism to recommend it. It's not quite a caper, not quite a character study, and not quite a combination of the two; by now, with 27 films to his credit, Claude Lelouch is merely coasting.
