Movie Summary
A bourgeois French girl becomes mixed up with charismatic bank robber in director Benoît Jacquots award-winning meditation on middle-class malaise. The setting is 1970s-era Paris, and free-spirited art student Lila (Isild Le Besco) lives a life of quiet discontent with her doting father. Upon meeting Moroccan criminal Bada (Ouassini Embarek) at a local nightclub, Lila is convinced that she has found the love of her life. But Bada and his partner have just taken part in a daring bank robbery that has left two people dead, and authorities are fast closing in on the pair. Determined to hang on to her handsome new mate at all costs and excited by the romantic life of a criminal on the run, Lila invites Bada and his accomplice to hide out overnight in her apartment. The following morning Bada, his partner in crime, and the accomplices girlfriend, and Lila all flee Paris for a frenzied cross-continent journey through Spain, Morocco, and Greece. With the police fast closing in and tensions within the group rising, it soon becomes apparent that it was naiveté, not love, which led Lila to fall in with this dangerous group of criminals. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
