Well lets face it, with LeLouch at the helm and Deneuve on screen the stage is set for something highly watchable, more likely than not.
Dutronc plays suave and ultra cool Simon Lacassaine, a thief with cultural attachments who as it happens, has just broken out of jail. Through circumstance, he falls in with upmarket hooker Deneuve, also on the constabulary's wanted list, and between them they spend the better part of the movie evading both the Gendarmes and US Authorities.
The performances of the leads lifts this taut little thriller higher than the level to which it might be seen to aspire. The audience cannot be sure quite what is around the corner.
