A far better film than many reviews would suggest, Phillipe Noiret is effortlessly amusing and there is a lovely cameo by Jean Roquefort. However the leading role of the pilot, played by Richard Bohringer was rather blank and unengaged.

There were I thought shades of 'Les Valseuses' evident in the film, which wore a little thin in a what is a far more recent film. Also notable(as another reviewer has mentioned)were some references to the later works of Bunuel;which Carole Bouquets appearance reinforced.

Despite some hilarious and indeed rewarding parts the film remains uneven and many avenues which could have been explored, both to comic and dramatic effect have only been briefly engaged. Sadly I feel this film could have been a real masterpiece but there were too many threads contained in it; none of which were properly explored. The road movie aspect is a film in itself as is the extraordinary relationship between Roquefort and Bouquet, as well as the pilot Bohringers motives, too name but a few threads.

In all an amusing ride, but a slippery one nonetheless, leading to who knows where!
