This is a mid-60's French version of an Italian Spaghetti western, so besides a lot of gunplay and things being blown up, you also get some sexy scenes and discussions about the meaning of class warfare and revolution.
Jeanne Moreau seems a little shy and reticent about keeping up with the free spirited Bardot, but they both seem to be enjoying themselves. George Hamilton gives a surprisingly interesting performance.
For those who enjoy Westerns, the sexual revolution of the 50's and 60's, and have a socialist class conscious, this is a delight.
The 2006 Western "Bandidas" with Penelope Cruz and Selma Hayek is a Latina version of this movie, close in spirit and energy, if not in plot.
