Movie Info

Claude Lelouch's Bandits combines a murder story with a skewered view of "family values." Jewel thief Jean Yanne ships his daughter Marie-Sophie Lelouch off to a Swiss boarding school. His motives are not altogether paternal: Yanne intends to avenge the murder of his wife, and doesn't want his daughter around to complicate his plans. In Switzerland, Lelouch falls in love with a young criminal, and the cycle that has entrapped her father starts all over again. Nothing is what it seems and nothing that happens is what we expect in Bandits. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Bandits

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

A lot goes on, but the movie remains uneventful. It sizzles with soul-searching.

Has Claude Lelouch lost it?

By the conclusion of the film, a lifetime of human crises have been exposed without the slightest insight into the experiences.
