The cons are on, in four larcenous tales. Horikawa’s The Five Benefactors of Fumiko stars Mie Hama (You Only Live Twice) as a hostess who schemes to fleece a clubgoer off-site; Gregoretti’s The Road Map has streetwalkers skirting the law by marrying elderly clients; buyer beware—of Jean-Pierre Cassel, in Chabrol’s The Man Who Sold the Eiffel Tower; and Godard’s The Great Swindler reunites him with Breathless star Jean Seberg, here caught up in counterfeiting.
