Claude Lelouch's Bandits combines a murder story with a skewered view of "family values." Jewel thief Jean Yanne ships his daughter Marie-Sophie Lelouch off to a Swiss boarding school. His motives are not altogether paternal: Yanne intends to avenge the murder of his wife, and doesn't want his daughter around to complicate his plans. In Switzerland, Lelouch falls in love with a young criminal, and the cycle that has entrapped her father starts all over again. Nothing is what it seems and nothing that happens is what we expect in Bandits. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A lot goes on, but the movie remains uneventful. It sizzles with soul-searching."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Has Claude Lelouch lost it?"
‑ Oz,
"By the conclusion of the film, a lifetime of human crises have been exposed without the slightest insight into the experiences."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
