A beautifull and thoroughly modern young French women, Francoise, gets involved with an Israeli agent working in Lybia. The agent is exposed and in order to save his life, he has to be smuggled out of the country in a trunk ("valise"). Francoise and the agent get through a lot of turbulent adventures, in the process of which the thoroughly liberated young woman also seduces a Lybian agent and an Egyptian officer, who also fall wildly in love with here. Resolute Francoise stays in control of the situation and imposes a kind of peaceful coexistence on her three lovers. Written by R. Holsbergen < <rholsbergen@europarl.eu.int>

Excellent comedy
10 September 1999 | by (Luxembourg) – See all my reviews

It is many years ago that I saw this film, but I still remember it as one of the best comedies I ever saw. Mireille Darc is a very attractive heroin of this turbulent, light hearted vaudeville, masterfully directed by George Lautner.
