Shot in wide-screen, low-grain black and white, this sleek suspense narrative quietly unpacks the delusions and emotional hunger of its upper-class heroine.

If you're not careful, A Tout De Suite--Benoit Jacquot's ode to the French New Wave, infused with his love of American crime classics 'Bonnie and Clyde' and 'Badlands'--will fool you.

The film's retro appeal includes black-and-white cinematography and a Truffaut-esque fascination for parallels between the characters' wild flight and filmmaking itself as a wide-eyed, open-ended experience.

Crazy things certainly happen to Lili, but Le Besco drifts through most of the proceedings as though she were following a checklist: long face (done), three-way with lithe Athenians (yup), the occasional suggestion of zombietude (mission accomplished).

This is a film of disturbing emotional power and frank sexuality that is photographed in sensuous black and white.

Should deliver to that core of filmgoers who respond to anything French, edgy, well-reviewed and well-done.

Stylish but pointless and bland romantic thriller.

Despite the film's infectious style and the powerful charisma of its leading performers, it doesn't really catch fire.

A Tout de Suite contains a sufficient amount of action and suspense but it's also quite the literary picture.

... a painful and poignant film at once empathetic and critical, more soberly unnerving than exciting, but never less than compelling.

Opaque stares and pregnant pauses can only pull so much weight, no matter how snazzy the packaging.

A Tout de Suite is a sometimes-interesting film, particularly its first 30 minutes, but runs on long after the intrigue ends...

Benoit Jacquot's drama creates a sense of dislocation with its impossible-to- predict-what-will- happen-next plot, jumpy black-and-white cinematography, elusive characters and casual approach to the time in which it's set.

Thoroughly assured as a piece of art, and bears rewards worth enduring stretches of palled uneventfulness.

Jacquot has really excelled at recreating another era - the movie feels like a lost New Wave film just coming to light.

Whether focused on Lili's face or standing back to take in her long limbs, Caroline Champetier's enthralling black-and-white camerawork is at once nimble and evocative.

Evokes the feel and the sensibility of the New Wave while retaining a decidedly contemporary tone.

Audience Reviews for tout de suite (Right Now)

[font=Century Gothic]With "A Tout de Suite," writer-director Benoit Jacquot has made another rumination about the reverbations of women's actions.("Sade" being an exception to this rule.) In other words, if we have freedom, than we must accept the consequences of our actions. Whether this is sexist depends on the circumstances of the specific movie.("Seventh Heaven" did give me cause for concern.) Here, it is 1975 and a 19-year old talented but unenthusiastic art student(Isild Le Besco), who lives at home with her father and sister, a university student, gets involved with bank robbers after becoming smitten with one of them(Ouassini Embarek). Even knowing who they are, she still decides to leave home with them. It is clear that she is naive about the world around her but not about sex.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"A Tout de Suite" is shot in black and white(which I am such a sucker for). The movie emulates the French New Wave with its jump cuts and loose story structure. Some stock footage is added to make it look more like 1975.[/font]
