Storyline

After the successful bank robbery Micky hopes to take back his girlfriend Mary who has been taken from him by the brothers Venin. On the way to Paris he meets one Leon, a neurotic and dreamer, whom he and his associates consider an idiot. Leon can hardly understand what Micky is up to but he follows him everywhere and soon falls in love with Mary. This strange love triangle resolves in a tragic ending. Strange it may seem but the credits tell us that "The film is inspired by Dostoyevsky's "The Idiot" and intended as a homage to the great writer". Written by Yuri German <blsidt1@imf.org>

Not for everyone
29 October 2018 | by Dave_douellSee all my reviews

The plot is really very simple but the dialogue is completely nonsensical!! It's as if every character has had a stroke and can't put together a simple sentence. You could almost get as much out of the movie if you muted it all the way through. The style reminds me of "A Clockwork Orange" with the hyperactive characters, only more difficult to understand the dialogue. I had to add this movie to my collection solely for the incredible Sophie Marceau. As usual we get to see plenty of skin from one of the most beautiful and sexy women ever on film. She is truly a work of art in my opinion, every flawless inch! Dostoyevsky is my favorite author, but I'm not too sure he would want to be credited with this film.
