I saw this lovely film, A Tout de Suite, a French movie about a young woman who impulsively joins her bank robber boyfriend on the lam. It's not nearly as raucous and chase-crazy as that sounds, having been made in black and white in a sort of neorealist fashion. It's part low-toned Patricia Highsmith, Masculin-Feminin, part Kings of the Road. Not a "big" movie, and not one to have huge expectations of. But if you're a fan of the French New Wave, and wish they made them like that again, this is the movie to see.

The star, actress Isild de Besco, reminded me of a woman named Liv I met at Holden Village -- a blond both ethereal and earthy, as only a post-hippie can be.
