Summary
Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous centerpiece sequence in which the camera tracks along a seemingly endless traffic jam, and rich with historical and literary references, is a surreally funny and disturbing call for revolution, a depiction of society retreating to savagery, and, according to the credits, the end of cinema itself.
