Pierrot le Fou (Criterion Collection) back to product details

Comment dit-on "Over-rated"?

PIERROT LE FOU offers Jean-Luc Godard in full-blown Mr. Smarty Pants manner (there are those of us who feel that this is actually his default mode). Whatever--the result is cute enough to set one's teeth permanently on edge. Technically more proficient than his earlier "A Woman Is a Woman" (the enjoyable parts here are due almost entirely to the crack cinematography of Raoul Coutard), the film is non-stop references to other movies, as well as the writer/director's not-very-interesting ideas on life, love and movie genres. After a period of being subjected to these never-ending "hi-jinx," you just want to haul off and slap Belmondo and Karina silly. But don't believe me: Rent and wallow. I suppose, in its time, "Pierrot le Fou" appeared novel. But some wines--say, ripple posing as a light, bright burgundy--neither age nor travel well.
