The fact that Henri Charriere, whose life was dramatized in "Papillon" with Steve McQueen in 1973, wrote the script for this caper film and also has a supporting role in it may make some people willing to check it out, mostly out of curiosity. But don't be fooled; it's an (initially) muddled, padded and unexpectedly unslick picture. Not even Claudia Cardinale in a low-cut dress can make it worth watching. (*1/2)
