L'Amour Braque -aka- Mad Love (DVD)
Directed by Andrzej Zulawski
Sophie Marceau (The World Is Not Enough, Braveheart, Police), Francis Huster (La Femme Publique, Le Dîner de Cons) and Tchéky Karyo (La Femme Nikita, Dobermann) form the mad love-triangle at the core of Andrzej Zulawski’s L’Amour Braque (a.k.a. Mad Love), a postmodern, existentialist homage to Fyodor Dostoevsky’s classic novel The Idiot. A manic bank robber (Karyo) aims to take back his beloved moll (Marceau) from rival gangsters. On a train to Paris, he meets a neurotic dreamer (Huster) who assumes the mantle of the tale’s “idiot” and gets swept up in the ensuing maelstrom of love and vengeance. Brimming with outbursts of energy and eruptions of emotional violence, L’Amour Braque is a deliriously unique, perverse and bloody ballet choreographed by the visionary director of Possession and Cosmos.
