The Smugglers and A Girl Is a Gun: The Films of Luc Moullet

1967 NR

From director Luc Moullet, a gifted but often overlooked member of the French new wave movement, comes this twin bill of rollicking comedies. Packed with slapstick laughs, The Smugglers (1967) is an action-adventure centering on two distaff protagonists who transport parcels and people between warring countries. In the 1971 oater A Girl Is a Gun, Moullet explores themes of lust and reprisal via the exploits of Billy le Kid (Jean-Pierre Leaud).
