The scenes... have a playful, meandering quality held together by Rivette's dashes of humor and visual punning and the bond created between the two women. Full Review

This entertaining and provocative work by the now 85-year-old director fits into his oeuvre as a complement to his best known movie among American art-film fans. Full Review

The very slight charms of this picaresque, quite extended two-character stroll through Paris may well elude all but the most committed Jacques Rivette devotees. Full Review

What the Surrealists found in Louis Feuillade's World War I serials, we can find here. [Jacques] Rivette too renders the ordinary dreamlike by filming his fantasy-driven actors in the midst of life. Full Review

It seems more obvious than ever how much Rivette has influenced a subsequent generation of filmmakers-Spike Jonze, Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry-and expanded our sense of the possible. Full Review

In Rivette's rhapsodically probing view, the labyrinthine city of recondite romanticism and the bloody ideals of revolutionary heroism appear fated to vanish together ...

Product Description:

In this unreal walk through the streets of Paris, Marie (Bulle Ogier), a woman convicted of robbing a bank is just out from prison when she runs into Baptiste (Pascale Ogier) a young paranoid needing companionship, and the two team up for awhile. Marie's former boyfriend (Pierre Clementi) supplies them with a strange map of the city, suspicious because he keeps files on political figures that may be somehow linked to the map. A gangster nicknamed "Max" begins to track Marie and the already paranoid Baptiste, causing Marie to examine the map as though it held the clue to which sides of the city were "safe" and which were not. As the two women attempt to outsmart Max and unknown gangsters, they try to figure out the map - a task made all the more difficult by Baptiste's tendency to violent rushes of adrenaline and Marie's overworked imagination (a dragon at the North Bridge is a threat until Baptiste screams him down). Between the dragon and their own demons, Marie and Baptiste face frightening odds against coming out of this misadventure intact.
