What is it?

During the opening credits, a man inside a telephone booth is picked up by a helicopter, flown out of town to the coast, and eventually dropped into the sea. See more »
Seriously underappreciated comedy with one of the finest and funniest opening "twists" this filmgoer has ever seen. Belmondo is at his comic and athletic best and Bissett is gorgeous and perfectly cast as a student doing a research paper on pulp-fiction authors (Belmondo). To say much more would spoil the imaginative twists and turns in this film. If you can find it, watch it!
If you like Belmondo in this you might also enjoy "Up to His Ears" (1965)
