Suzanne and Leonard

John Hilbard, Denmark, 1984

94 min.DK/Feature

Tagging along with an older convict, Leonard, presumably a good youth, but a victim of unfortunate circumstance, breaks out of prison. When the older man is killed, Leonard cannot quite make it on his own. He has a chance encounter with thrill-seeking Suzanne, 16, who gives him the key to her father's car. The thrills get out of hand. In between deadly car chases, young love must remain an orphan.
