Anne [is] played with heart-stopping capriciousness by Romy Schneider, who was never lovelier and who is capable of distracting everyone in the film, and the audience above all, from whatever grave political matters are afoot.
There's a surprise every five minutes, except when fascism gets its ass kicked at the end.
Certainly not an undiscovered masterpiece.
... you know this is heading into truly weird territory.
Alain Cavalier's film, in re-release, offers plenty of left/right, labor/management, humanity/ideology contrasts, but dramatically it's silly. It's worth watching for Schneider, who is simply radiant.
Rescued now from 1962 oblivion, Alain Cavalier's black-and-white "noir" is sleek and cool, with complicated turns and thrilling shoot-outs and stormy betrayals, both political and romantic.
Alain Cavalier's New Wave thriller is a tasty French mix of politics and romance, while glorifying that iconic goddess, Romy Schneider.
might now finally find itself as a key part of post-Algerian France.
In "Le Combat Dans L'Ile," Anne(Romy Schneider) discovers a package in her closet which contains a bazooka. Afraid of ending up in an episode of "24," she confronts her husband Clement(Jean-Louis Trintignant) who admits to being part of a right wing terrorist cell with his new friend Serge(Pierre Asso). As part of his political awakening, he plans to give up his life of privilege and place at his father's(Jacques Berlioz) company. Plus, there is also the matter of the assassination of Terrasse(Maurice Garrel), a local politician.
"Le Combat Dans L'Ile" is an intriguing misstep that starts well but instead of investigating this shadow world further, backs off and becomes just another banal domestic drama. For such an understated drama, the bazooka might seem a bit like overkill but it is probably left over from World War II, like the fascism of Clement and his friends. On a broader note, the movie is about escaping the past and growing up, as Clement in trying to get away from the influence of his dominating father, gets himself in a worse mess than he could have imagined. As one character asks another after a particularly off-the-wall request, "Are you 12?"
