Slappy McGee's rating of the film Bob le flambeur

From the director of "Le Samourai", this stylish heist film is an existential drama in itself. He has a young protegee (of course) and a young girlfriend (of course), but neither of them can live up to Bob's idealistic view of them. The film is all about how Bob teaches life lessons to his younger friends, how life never fails to surprise and thwart the best laid plans, and how our own ghosts never quite leave us.
