Papa the Little Boats

Papa the Little Boats

Directed by Nelly Kaplan • 1971 • France
Starring Sheila White, Michel Bouquet, Judith Magre

They messed with the wrong heiress. What seems like a brilliant plan—abducting the wealthy Vénus De Palma (Sheila White)—soon goes spectacularly awry for Marc (Michel Bouquet) and his gang of kidnappers, as the madcap Vénus proceeds to turn the tables on her captors, using her wits and wiles to kill them off one by one. Directed by Nelly Kaplan with the brio of a live-action cartoon, this whimsical caper balances its antic comedy with a feisty feminist edge.
