Cartouche
October 2018 Ciao, Bella

Who can resist a French costume drama with the gorgeous Claudia Cardinale as a gypsy wench and the ugly-handsome Jean Paul Belmondo as the bandit she “reforms” into a sword-fighting 18th century Robin Hood? Also known as Swords of Blood, this swashbuckler is at times comic, at times darkly romantic as only a European melodrama can be. A hit in France the year it was released, this movie is a perfect showcase not only for Cardinale’s beauty, but for the anti-hero qualities in Belmondo that made him an icon of the French New Wave.
