Nadja Tiller replaces Genevieve Page,but the screenplay is a mess ,where the viewer easily loses the vital lead ;the gags are repetitive,the characters being tied and gagged every ten minutes;one can save ,at a pinch ,the scene of the "torture" but the viewer has guessed the truth before the "revelation" .
The last pictures are a "north by northwest " ripoff.
It would take four years before Marais made a truly great movie with Demy's "Peau D'Ane".
