Director: Luc Besson, 1985.
France, 104 minutes.
French with English subtitles.

A handsome thief joins a group of slackers choosing to live underground in the Parisian metro system. The plot itself whirls without care from here, an exercise in style, not precision. Chis Lambert and Isabelle Adjani are love interests, doomed from the start. Wit abounds, colorful characters flash on the screen, disappearing back into the shadows of the miles of tunnels, a sampler of punk and new wave style running below the streets of Paris.
