Le Petit Soldat

"OK"

Le Petit Soldat Review


French Bruno is assigned to assassinate an Algerian sympathizer, but darn it, the hot hot hot Anna Karina gets in the way. Turns out she's a sympathizer too. Nothing much happens in this heralded thriller/romance from Jean-Luc Godard, as the film sidetracks into long idylls in hotel rooms and on the streets of France before our hero finally gets to his opponent. When he does, it's shocking, as he doesn't just shoot him in the head, he's tortured to such a degree that the film was banned in France. Interesting historically, much less so artistically.
