  • Échappement libre

    1964. France. Directed by Jean Becker. Screenplay by Becker, Claude Sautet, Maurice Fabre, Daniel Boulanger. Music by Martial Solal. With Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg, Fernando Rey. Reuniting the stars of Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless, Becker conjures an action-packed caper in which rogue smuggler Belmondo, accompanied by the sexy and secretive Seberg, absconds with a hidden consignment of gold as he makes his way from Beirut to Bremen. As high-speed chases ensue, composer Solal keeps things free and easy, alternating between a brassy big-band sound and effervescent piano solos. In French; English subtitles. 105 min.
