Bonnot and Clyde.
12 July 2007 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

A movie which would never have been made if Arthur Penn's "Bonnie and Clyde had not been a blockbuster everywhere the year before.First there was a song "La Bande à Bonnot" sung by Joe Dassin(son of Jules) ,and then this film...

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.
