... 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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

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.
| Original Score: 4/5

Alain Cavalier's New Wave thriller is a tasty French mix of politics and romance, while glorifying that iconic goddess, Romy Schneider.

There's a surprise every five minutes, except when fascism gets its ass kicked at the end.
