Four swindle stories, taking place successively in Tokyo - Japan (Les cinq bienfaiteurs de Fumiko), Amsterdam - The Netherlands (La riviere de diamants), Italie (La feuille de route), and Paris - France (L'homme qui vendit la tour Eiffel).
I agree that this was not a great movie, but it has lived in my mind despite only seeing it once as a student in Lancaster - partly because of the extremely good Kenton Coe score, based on a Peruvian tune. I think that just as some bad books can make great movies, some movies stick like a burr despite the fact that all you can remember is a feeling, an atmosphere or a memory of some music. One of those movies is this. For me, a few others are the wartime melodrama "The Key", "Herostratus", "One evening a train", "The Keep" , "Happiness" and "Rider on the rain"
Was this movie ever released on laser disc, VHS or DVD?
"To be old without being adult" (Song of old lovers), Jacques Brel
