Arthur Penn’s masterpiece is a true story about a couple of criminals who are lovers, made under the influence of the French New Wave (initially, Truffaut was considered as the director). Set in the time of the Great Depression, the film is a story about anti-heroes, petty bank robber Clyde Barrow and his girlfriend Bonnie Parker. She is sick of working as a waitress in a small town and joins her lover after he tries to steal her mother’s car.
