Another spy thriller
7 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

Although the screenplay was written by Jose Giovanni ,it was not representative of his work:his world was the world of romantic gangsters,cops,raiders or losers(often played by Lino Ventura or Alain Delon).He had often denounced death penalty long before it was abolished in his country.

This is to my knowledge Giovanni's only attempt at a spy thriller.It's a routine work,but generally the plot is decipherable,which is not always the case with double agents stories.Effective directing by Jacques Deray who would have his hour of glory with Alain Delon ("la piscine" "Borsalino").Lino Ventura does a good job.
