The title tells all -- or nearly all -- in the French melodrama Guns. The film concerns a group of disparate types who support themselves by running guns to the Arabs. On the surface, it would seem that these characters are bad guys. In fact, the guns are to be used by a resistance group who hope to continue shipping oil to the West, despite the despotic curbs imposed upon fuel shipments by their leaders. Very little of the film makes sense, though the action highlights are worthwhile. Guns was written and directed by Robert Kramer, who also plays a minor role.
