Female pirate film led by the duo Geraldine Chaplin and Bernadette Lafont, Noroît (une vengeance) evokes both The Smugglers of Moonfleet by Fritz Lang and a giallo by Mario Bava for its bloody, sensual side and its seventies colors . Dotted with multiple literary, mythological and theatrical references, this psychedelic adaptation of a 17th century work can also be read as an allegory of the end of the ideals of May 68.
