Museum of the Moving Image - Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Claude Schmitz. France. 2018, 59 mins. DCP. In French with English subtitles. Original-language title: Braquer Poitiers. A pair of hapless friends, the pettiest of thieves, kidnap the owner of a car wash, seriously overestimating his wealth. They are also surprised to find him take kindly to the kidnapping, relieved at the change in scenery and glad for some new companions. The thieves’ girlfriends arrive, and the stage is set for the leisurely yet assured unfolding of a delightfully screwy comedy that is also a warmly human study of friendships and relationships. North American premiere.
