However Zazie escapes her uncle’s custody and sets out to explore Paris on her own.
Plot: A brash and precocious ten-year-old comes to Paris for a whirlwind weekend with her rakish uncle. He and the viewer get more than they bargained for, however, in this anarchic comedy that rides roughshod over the City of Light. Based on a popular novel by Raymond Queneau that had been considered unadaptable, the audacious Zazie dans le Métro, made with flair on the cusp of the French New Wave, is a bit of stream-of-consciousness slapstick, wall-to-wall with visual gags, editing tricks, and effects.

Beware of the Child
This has to be seen to be believed! Malle seems just as well to be the victim of Zazie’s dark whirlwind surrealism as the audience themselves. Never again achieved an adolescent movie character such an anarchic quality. Despite all the displays of technical outrageousness and pure buffoonery, the pic never feels as superficially sketch-like as many of Dick Lester’s works. And the complete lack of warmheartedness is a relief in a picture featuring a young girl!
Now that’s a truly original way to declass French bourgeoisie and throw an anti-Fascist pie in their faces! And it’s one of the few hommages to silent comedy (amongst sundry allusions to cinema and social topics) that really work. And it’s one of Malle’s best.

Zazie dans le métro (1960)
For a long time I’d only heard vague things about this movie, but it was all very fawning and I had the sense that it was Malle’s masterpiece. Then I saw a trailer that Criterion put together and my hopes were dashed. It just looked incredibly obnoxious. So I was steeling myself for a trying experience. In actuality, it’s a mix of my premature impressions. Something like a Looney Tunes cartoon come to life, the film is bursting with colorful scenes, zany action, sight gags, slapstick, wordplay (much of which I assume is lost in translation), irreverent humor and wild camera tricks. I have to applaud the energy and inventiveness that Malle brings to the screen, it’s a unique, anarchic and bold film with echoes in Tati, Jeunet and others. However, it’s still a bit obnoxious. It’s a weird sensation to be simultaneously charmed and annoyed, but very little of the comedy appealed to my sense of humor. It’s all too wacky and madcap. Like HELLZAPOPPIN’, I admire the spirit of it and kind of had fun with certain parts, but I doubt I would ever sit through it again.
