If his later incursion in British Free Cinema wasn't consequent, this Nouvelle Vague (french and polish) burlesque version is brilliant, with a wild Skolimowski choreographing ideas of musical movements along with an extraordinary score by Krzysztof Komeda and cinematography by Willy Kurant: filmed in Belgium, with Léaud as protagonist, we can only see the mirage of an adventurous Paris of the 60s, masculin-féminin.
It's great that films like this exist although they are a bit painful to watch at times. Films that haven't really a plot but rely on a few ideas and the main actor and are apparently done with a very tight budget. For me it was interesting cause Deep End is one of my all time favourites and I was curious to see if Skolimowski's Genius was apparent a few years earlier. On the evidence of this, it wasn't really.
