In the 18th century, Louis de Bourguignon is working with the Malichot's gang, but their ways are too 'unethical' for him. He creates his own band, acting under the name of Cartouche, making audacious robberies of the rich people, and even distributing the takings with the poor. Thus, cartouche attracts the people's sympathies, Venus's love, and hate from the Police and Malichot... Cartouche can escape all the traps they set at him - except the entrapments of love. Eventually, he will be saved by a woman, at her own cost.


De Broca and Belmondo bring their unique Gallic flair to the grand style swashbuckler. This lush and lively swashbuckler is notable for it's slapstick humor and blatantly romantic finale.The silliness works thanks to director DeBroca's whimsically light touch and Belmondo's atypical athletic charm.It's an elegant and sumptuous looking production and a surprisingly romantic adventure.The ravishing Ms. Cardinale alone is worth the price of admission.Delightful in spirit, charming in delivery, with appropriately gorgeous music by Georges Delerue.The superb widescreen DVD from Anchor Bay is the best way to appreciate this movie.
