Very much overlooked, brilliant piece of madness
8 December 2012 | by jordan_belSee all my reviews

I must have seen the movie 4 or 5 times before reading the book - in French - and honestly I have a preference for the movie. This is a great piece of madness that you can put right between King of hearts, The Devil by the tail or even A clockwork orange... Clearly something snapped in the early 70's and resulted in unforgettable quotes, crazy design, clothes, hairdos and dance styles. And to have Ventura and Jean Yanne playing a couple of crooked rednecks just sums it up. Of course for it's even better with Mireille Darc at the top of her... art let's say. Maybe it's a movie one should see only when high as a kite, but I would say it's a must see.
