Pickpocket follows Michel, a young thief in Paris making pulls in metro stations, crowded streets, and wherever the opportunity arises.
The relationships Michel has to his friends and dying mother are secondary to the intensity of his relationship with the police who are trying to catch him. A hugely influential and achingly emotional film, loosely based on Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment.
