New wave meets vieux cinema:it amounts to nothing.
The director -now completely forgotten- was anxious to sound "new wave " -so,Jean Claude Brialy's presence,and a crude dialogue ,with sex galore-,but also not to alienate himself the "old" audience (a real story,Michèle Morgan's presence").He fails twice,using hackneyed mother/daughter relationship,poor detective screenplay and flashbacks just because it's trendy.Remo Forlani's script is abysmal and could have provided material for a photo romance .Everything happens in a chic and distinguished milieu,but actually nothing happens.The conclusion was certainly intended to be cynical,but it really hits rock bottom.The two leads are very talented actors,but elsewhere.
