A Real Life (Au Voleur)
Guillaume Depardieu, Florence Loiret Caille, Jaques Nolot / Fiction / French
One of Guillaume Dépardieu’s final screen appearances: a playful, New Wave-inflected road movie with a killer soundtrack.
Reacting impulsively to an inappropriate crush, a respectable young teacher lays her safety on the line for a grubby petty thief. Before she knows it, she's on the run - Bonnie to his Clyde, appropriately accompanied by Depression-era American folk tunes. Wayward, warm and genuinely unpredictable, this is a beautifully directed film, and a worthy vehicle for its late lead's idiosyncratic talents.
