“At the crossroads of (large) paths Fanfan the Tulip , Robin Hood and a certain insolence New Wave , Jean-Paul Belmondo is beautiful, leaping from light to serious. Behind the burlesque rhythm of capes and swords, Broca’s brilliance of blues and reds heralds revolutionary time. The romantic drama, little by little, takes precedence over fantasy. Once enriched, the bandit discovers boredom. ” Amuse yourself, it prevents you from dying, ” warns Venus. A corpse, however, and an unforgettable funeral sequence will eventually plunge the film into desperate lyricism. And de Broca transforms his mourning bandits into vigilantes … Superb. “

– Guillemette Odicino , Télérama December 22, 2012
