An 18th century story of Cartouche, a cooper's son who becomes a quick-witted thief and highwayman, a French Robin Hood who takes over a Parisian crime syndicate. He joins the army to escape a local gang, but he later returns with two army mates and becomes the gang's new leader. Together with the band of robbers and a beautiful Gypsy named Venus, Cartouche roams the countryside -- plundering the aristocrats' coffers to give to the poor, with enough time left over for romancing the ladies. Based on French legend, this dark fable encompasses farce, tragedy, violence and high-flown adventure.

Presented by Joseph E. Levine. Produced in association with Les Films Ariane-Filmsonor (Paris) and Vides (Rome). Shot in Dyaliscope (French widescreen process).

Belmondo is dashing as Cartouche and Cardinale is ravishing as Venus, his gypsy-mistress, in this rousing action-comedy.
-- Leonard Maltin

François Truffaut's first feature was this 1959 portrait of Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud), a boy who turns to petty crime in the face of neglect at home and hard times at a reform school. Somewhat autobiographical for its director, the film helped usher in the heady spirit of the French New Wave, and introduced the Doinel character, who became a fixture in Truffaut's movies over the years. Poignant, exhilarating, and fun (there's a parade of cameo appearances from some of the essential icons and directors from the movement), this film is an important classic.
--Tom Keogh
