"Sans Plomb" belongs to the category of films that one either likes or one hates. Poetic cinema such as this is always an exercise of perilous style, walking the tightrope between the beautiful and the ridiculous. "Sans Plomb" is a lucid second reading of Homer's Odyssey. Through the play of the actors and the magical music of Elvis Costello, the film manages to create a particular atmosphere, a daydream with screaming colors. The film shifts gracefully between the tender and the comic.
