This slack French crime movie comes from the end of Ventura's career. It has the best frog A feature production values, including name players and shooting on location in Berlin, but it is too studiofied and populated by too obviously glamorous women and colourful support players.

The imbroglio - on road action with a sinister black van, a break in, the seduction of the concert musician sister and a chase that crashes The Wall - dissolves into a large scale black mail program.
Every one has done better but, even if he is gray and sagging, there's still a buzz to seeing Lino work through one of these. It's also a reminder of his collaboration with Pinoteau on the excellent LE GIFLE.
