Beatnik grace
17 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This low-budget exercise in pure absurd style is probably Benazeraf's signature work, the petulant gangster characters and eccentric editing having the feel of early Godard. As with the rest of his oeuvre, the film breaks out into wild erotic dances to free-form jazz which don't really fit with the narrative, lending a surrealistic and devil-may-care beatnik aura. The Chet Baker score and the tight-fitting casual wear now make the milieu seem ultra-hip at the turn of the millennium. No wonder Radley Metzger picked up some of Benazeraf's films for American distribution; they're definitely birds of a feather -- and what exotic plumage they share!
