One of the seven Eurospy classics

Author: vjetorix from Seattle
25 November 2002

This is a pre-Bond film starring the incredibly popular (at the time) Eddie Constantine, who made a string of French spy flicks in the early 60's. You may have heard of his most famous film, a little number called Alphaville. But that's art. We're talking Eurospy, we're talking There's Going To Be a Party.

This relatively low-key adventure is filled with genuine humor, surreal imagery, and has an intriguing mystery at its core. Director Pierre Montazel captures a film noir look for the many night scenes but even more notable are the audacious camera tricks and new wave allusions sprinkled throughout.

This is a fun movie to watch for the cast, the clever script and the great care taken with the visuals. Another first rate aspect is the free jazz score by the Jazz Group of Paris and Martial Solal that manages to highlight and accent without overwhelming the proceedings.
