Trivia

Filming in Greece was difficult, as the notorious military coup of the Greek colonels in 1967 had turned the country into a totalitarian dictatorship. Director Claude Chabrol was nonetheless able to insert a short scene at the beginning of the film in which a man is arrested by the authorities at the border, with the strong implication that he is to be tortured and murdered. When the film was shown in Britain in a dubbed version (under the title, "The Road To Corinth", a simple translation of the French title), this scene was cut, although it was later restored for a television showing.

Pointless really
5 February 2003 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

If the prospect of watching Jean Seberg dangle from a crane is appealing to you then perhaps you may get something out of this pointless exercise. As it sits there is really very little to recommend here other than the luminous beauty of the star.

The story, the smuggling of little black boxes that jam the Greek radar stations, is nothing to get excited about and director Claude Chabrol refuses to inject much in the way of action or suspense to offset it. Chabrol made a few spy flicks early in his career (see Our Agent Tiger) but this one must be considered the weakest.

The film opens with an anonymous quotation: `I don't ask you to believe it but I suggest that you dream about it.' There is a certain dream-like quality to the proceedings but this lackadaisical film is nearly anti-spy cinema. If the question is `Who has the black box?' the reply simply has to be `Who cares?'
