France, 1979 (MIFF 1982)

Director: Christian Paureilhe

A road film about world-weariness and the quest for renewal, Get the Devil Out tells of a disgruntled, middle-aged Parisian who turns his back on the ruins of his life and takes to the southern roads in search of something else.

That something turns out to be the errant life of an outlaw, as he, accompanied by a young actress he has picked up, robs stores and banks to subsidize this new freedom.
