“Itu0026#39;s a kind of road movie in which two strangers Orontes, a nut case, and Pelopidas a jailbird make off in a stolen car to recover a bag of money secretly hidden in a WC of a roadhouse years before.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTheir journey takes them through numerous villages where they meet up with new and former girl friends with whom they enjoy multiple sexual adventures.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThey both have much time to make up having been confined for years.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s a senseless farce with some amusing situations as they try to evade their pursuers. Here and there are some witty lines but on the whole the humour is not very funny and decidedly crude at times e.g a couple sexing on the dinner table while a third person is eating his meal. I am becoming bored with films where they insist on characters urinating along roadsides. Itu0026#39;s just not funny any more. Canu0026#39;t we have more originality?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn one scene to escape capture Pelopidas agrees to feign death and be buried in a coffin in the cemetery. The idea is to dig him up afterward. All kinds of mishaps prolong his agony.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNobody comes to any real harm and the adventurers with their girl friends end up in America, a land they say is full of opportunities.”
