The film is primarily about Lili's experiences. When she becomes separated from the two men in Greece, she is without contacts or money. She is helped by several people who, predictably, want something in return. She must make her way in these difficult circumstances, taking what she needs while avoiding becoming an object of exploitation. True to the rest of the film, the end does not come with Lili revealing what lessons she has learned.Read more ›
One day he calls her and tells her that he's robbed a bank, it's all over the news, and asks if he and his partner can hide at her place. She agrees and sneaks them in. The partner's girlfriend comes to pick them up and they all leave on the run: first to Spain, then to Morocco, then Greece. At first they live the high life, but after a while, not having the ability to easily launder the stolen cash or readily use it, tempers start to flare as they all start getting on each other's nerves. When they get to Greece, Lili is questioned by immigration and is set free, but the others abandoned her outside the airport, leaving her alone and broke.
Devastated, she is befriended: first by a man who helps her, then sets her up with a letch. Then by a young woman, who takes her in and helps her find a job, but who also wants to be with her. Always looking for her guy, she is miserable and finally calls her father to take her home. She never gives up trying to find her guy though.
This is the typical story of upper middle class girl falls for bad boy, and the background story as to why ---father is clueless and distant, and the mother is not involved although she lives near by--- is not new.Read more ›
This film had me walking out of the theater and down Mercer Street wondering where I was and what I had just gone through. An incredibly vivid portrayal of young love and the motivations of a young woman's loyalty to her criminal-on-the-run lover.
While the plot needs tightening for a mass market and the dialogue suffers the character's blunt personalities, this film is a tribute to what one can do with a real story, which this is based on.
Low budget movie. Except for stock shots, it's all interiors, small cast, and shot in mono. The movie, however, generates a good deal of suspense, and Le Besco delivers some great moments. The actor who plays her lover is well matched to her--he plays in a similar style--and his face is also interesting and multifaceted.
See this, and you will want to see another Le Besco film. Fortunately, there are some twenty of them. I wish I had known about her long ago. Oh well, I had Sophie Marceau to keep me happy until Isild came along.

I'm not a big fan of this film. Normally this would sit right in a sweet spot of the kind of film I love. This one, nope, didn't make the cut. Read morePublished on August 31, 2009 by Dan Lebryk
