A man escapes from jail and takes a woman hostage. She is none other than the daughter of a corrupted politician. She falls in love with the fugitive and like him, she rebels against a society whose only value is dough.

***1/2. One of Jean-Pierre Mocky's best. If you want tp familiarize yourself with Jean-Pierre Mocky's tireless quest for justice, 'L'Albatros' could be a good introduction. This time, the director denouces the politicians's corruption in a by-election. The last scene on the prison's roof is mythical. Highly recommended.
Il n'y a décidément que Jean-Pierre Mocky pour nous proposer des films aussi superbement naïfs et insolents dans leur virulence tranquille et gauche teintée de ce romantisme d'arrière-garde si tendrement désabusé... www.cinefiches.com
