I love Monica Vitti from the films she did with Michelangelo Antonioni so when I decided to see some non-Antonioni Monica Vitti movies I found this one. Wow, is this a wacky movie. It’s apparently based on a comic strip about a thief turned secret agent. That thief is Modesty Blaise played by Monica Vitti. She is hired to help thwart another thief played by Dirk Bogarde. She has a boy toy she brings with her played by Terrence Stamp.
This movie can be worth watching for the sheer wackiness, but the main reason is to see Monica Vitti parade around in a variety of outfits. Some as odd as the one above. If you don’t like Monica Vitti then don’t bother with this movie. Otherwise it’s definitely worth a look.
