Incoherent dud
24 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

The title "French Intrigue" is only half right; the film does take place mostly in France, but it is very un-intriguing. According to IMDb, this was Pierre Koralnik's second directorial effort; I don't know if he improved later on, but at this point he absolutely could not direct: the film is very poorly put together, with an almost complete lack of basic transition shots. The script is incoherent and uninteresting. Serge Gainsbourg is supposed to be on a drug-busting mission, but he looks as if he was on drugs himself when this was made! Occasional nudity by Jane Birkin is the film's only redeeming virtue, but I'd still suggest that you avoid "French Intrigue" at all costs. * out of 4.
