Das Leben ist ein Spiel Rien ne va plus ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in German and French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ein Betrügerpärchen, das sich das tägliche Brot am Rande der großen Hotels und Spielcasinos mit kleinen, sicheren Gaunereien verdient, muß Lehrgeld zahlen, als es sich in der Schweiz an den großen Coup wagt und der Mafia ins Gehege kommt. Ein unbeschwerter, leichter Film, der von der Gegensätzlichkeit seiner Protagonisten und ihrem ambivalenten Spannungsverhältnis lebt, das auch den Zuschauer in der Schwebe hält. Eine als Versteckspiel um Geld, Liebe und falsche Identität inszenierte liebenswerte Fingerübung, die viele Versatzstücke des Genres zitiert, zugleich aber auch als selbstironische Replik verstanden werden kann. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 1999/2000 (CD-ROM)
