Screen legends Jean-Paul Belmondo (Le Doulos, Le Professionnel) and Claudia Cardinale (Once Upon a Time in the West, Blindfold) star in the exciting swashbuckler CARTOUCHE. Belmondo charms as 18th-century master thief, swordsman and rogue Louis-Dominique Bourguignon, alias Cartouche. But when Cartouche meets the beautiful bandit Venus (the luscious Cardinale), the pair launch a series of scandalous raids that rock the Parisian aristocracy. Can the most wanted man in France now steal the hearts of rich and poor alike or will he discover that true love may be the most dangerous caper of all? Jean Rochefort (The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe) and Jess Hahn (The Night of the Following Day) co-star in this sumptuous and surprising adventure co-written and directed by Philippe de Broca, the internationally acclaimed director of King of Hearts, That Man from Rio and Le Magnifique.
