1986. France. Directed by Jacques Rozier. Screenplay by Rozier, Lydia Feld. With Bernard Menez, Luis Rego. Opening with a race through a train station, Roziers exuberant comedy runs at a breakneck pace. A violently expressive sailor, two by-the-book train conductors, a Brazilian model, and her American impresario fuel an escalating confusion of languages and social classes that climaxes on an island off Brittanys coast. 132 min.
