Oh,even if... Catherine Deneuve "looked" the woman who holds everlasting emptiness... then this film became perfect.
But I love this film so much. Some scenes' mood makes me think that life is beautiful anyway because one meets someone.though the night becomes morning and everything disappear,the texture and sensation of "adventure" remains.
André Téchiné reached a state of grace in the 90's with a handful of beautiful films. 'Les Voleurs' (Thieves) is royally served by Catherine Deneuve who was stepping out of her iconic most beautiful-woman-in-France image, to take risks and play unglamourous characters.
She is captivating and overwhelming in 'Thieves'.
