A filmic essay on class struggle which draws on images from westerns but has no plot and is both an experiment in making a revolutionary film and an interrogation of how successfully such a film can be revolutionary.

Well I do not like it very much ,but it's nice to see Jacques Brel ,Annie Girardot and a good cast.The story itself is never really exciting,dealing with anarchists ,but violent ones.The Bonnot gang is certainly more faithful to the historical models than their American counterparts of the Barrow gang ,but their story is not more interesting for all that.Penn's film's strength was to make dashing Robin Hoods of two lousy gangsters.In spite of the actors,"la Bande à Bonnot" is a boring work.
