Storyline

Robert Simonet (Jean-Marc Thibault), a hard-working but good-hearted little garage owner, has spent a hard night on fixing in due time a car which he then has to tow away from the road in the early hours of this Saturday, completely wrecked in a crash by its careless speed-crazy driver. Upset by this event and by the coming cycle race where he is a favorite, he miss the German patrons who are back to take their car. They leave the town, but the direction of their Mercedes is not thoroughly repaired. And now, Robert is torn apart : shall he go to the police to have them calling back the German tourists, to the cost of the cycling race and of his reputation as a skilled mechanic? He does... but the police keeps him in custody, and the Germans seem to be now unreachable... Written by Didier Fort

A good french suspense movie

A suspense film without being a crime flick. A good drama that was usually aired on french broadcasts, in the seventies. But a rare film although. The tale of a petty mechanic, owner of a car repair shop, who accidentally neglects to fix a car which he was supposed to take care of. The the car owners, unaware of the problem, think everything is fixed and hit the road again. And when the mechanic realizes the problem, potentially lethal, he tries everything to warn and among everything stop the Young couple aboard the not entirely repaired car, before the accident. A matter of life and death for all the opponents.

A good suspense that reminds me my childhood.
