The first striking thing about this film is its cast : French actor Bruno Cremer, English villain Donald Pleasence, plus U.S. greats Joseph Cotten and Dennis Hopper, not to mention some Italian presence as well, in a French-produced venture. This should be sufficient reason to see a film that is as untypical as its variously talented cast. The French video cover puts the name of Donald Pleasence to the fore, though the actor appears only shortly. The film is rooted in a late seventies state of mind, and benefits from an apt direction. It's all plotting about in the higher spheres. There is suspense, the characters have some kind of mystery about them, and the atmosphere is that of a Kafka for the (not-so-)soon-to-be post-industrial age. Alfred Hitchcock meets Chris Marker meets William S. Burroughs. No bad references. Music by Claude Nougaro from Toulouse! Watch it when you get a minute or two.
