Pierrot le fou
A young man and his ex-girlfriend embark on a road trip to the Med, pursued by gangsters.
Dir Jean-Luc Godard
With Jean-Paul Belmondo, Anna Karina, Dirk Sanders
Bored with his staid, bourgeois existence in Paris, Ferdinand (Belmondo) abandons his family and heads south for the Mediterranean with ex-girlfriend Marianne (Karina), pursued by gangsters and leading a wayward life of crime. The sun-baked Riviera may represent freedom and passion but – as the fugitive romantic couple discover – it can also be languid, even dangerously hot.
