About the film
Le voyage d'Amélie
Release Date: December 18, 1974
In this gentle comedy, a disaffected group of young people bungle their first hold-up when the old lady they choose to rob turns out to be even poorer than they are. Not only that, but her husband has died, and she needs to get his body back to his hometown for burial and she is getting no help from the state. The would-be robbers good-naturedly agree to help her, and have a series of odd adventures involving the old lady, the corpse, and themselves. Eventually, the old lady dies as well, and they are really in a pickle.
