His lack of language, and the odd way she disappeared makes it nearly impossible for him to find any official help in his search as he enters the punk/drug culture to find out what has happened to her.Written by

Here is a film that pulls you in and doesn't let go. In a very low key, sometimes somber atmosphere that doesn't feel frantic all the time one can't ignore the interesting scenes and situations.
Had the film been shot in American it would not have been as interesting as it is. It all takes place in Paris. We see how some of the people live and the lead character is taken to some interesting establishments by his young Parisian partner in search of his kidnapped wife.
But we're not really interested in the wife. We are interested in the girl! And here is what keeps one interested. She lives a life on the fringes while the Dr. lives a very conventional life that he'll never be able to return to. He'll be thinking of these days for the rest of his life, never forgetting the girl and every place she's taken him to.
What I love about the film is how original and unpretentious it all is. No cliché here. I dig this out at least once a year to watch.
