Everyone loves this movie but me.

Imagine The Big Sleep but ten times more confusing but one tenth as charming.

Plot, plot, plot gets shoved in your face – then everything gets explained, but then re-explained for real. The end.

And no Humphrey Bogart. In fact, no characters at all to really care about – just a racing, baffling plot. Okay, a cute dog.

Maybe when the American producers remake it (as is supposedly happening) they’ll whip it into some shape. As it stands, it is confusing, fast and French enough to trick people into thinking it is art. In fact, it makes no sense.
