      william k Wildly exuberant, absurd, funny as well as silly and at times Nouvelle Vague-style comedy is fast-based, but at times quite enervating; of course, Jean-Pierre Léaud is, as always, a joy to watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A rather obnoxious performance from Leaud doesn't help this aimless French farce. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This must've been great back in the 60's, but now it's just unfortunately quite outdated and just plain weird.

      Serge Daney Cahiers du Cinéma Skolimowski has concealed the threads of his story even more deftly in The Departure than in his previous films . And so he proves that he can succeed at almost anything: for example, a commercial film. Oct 4, 2023 Full Review Penelope Houston The Spectator Much of this is spikily funny: the hero all sharp elbows and monomania, the filming (camerawork by Willy Kurant) as coolly rackety as Komeda's score.
