Louis Malle’s camera fills his tableaus with all sorts of eccentric details in this sweet, modest romance about two desperate people looking for a lifeline. We have Burt Lancaster bringing his history of tough guys to an aging gangster romancing Susan Sarandon’s waitress with a shady past in a city that’s crumbling around them.

Dreams. Becoming an Atlantic City croupier will help Sally realize her dream of going to Monte Carlo, a symbol of the glamorous life that has been evading her since escaping from Saskatchewan a decade ago. Lou dreams that he was a great mobster in the old days. Grace came to Atlantic City for a Betty Grable look-alike contest and stayed to become the wife of a mobster. A brief visit to Atlantic City by Sally's estranged husband will change the course of the lives of Sally and Lou.

The film’s hypnotic strangeness provides a ripe environment for these actors to demonstrate their prodigious gifts.   Aging gangster Lou (Lancaster) works for a widow named Grace (Kate Reid) in a building destined for demolition. Across the way lives an oyster-bar waitress (Sarandon) that Lou is erotically obsessed with. Lou claims he was once a contemporary of Bugsy Siegel but now runs a low-level gambling racket when not running errands, occasionally se” read more
