Isaach De Bankolé,
Ancienne espionne ayant arrêté depuis 10 ans, Clarisse vit une vie tranquille. Tout irait pour le mieux si son mari, Antoine, ne la trompait pas régulièrement tout en étant terriblement jaloux. Un jour, elle accepte une proposition de son ex-supérieur de rempiler le temps d'une mission à Capri. Là sous le nom de code "Fraise", elle se fait passer pour l'épouse de "Vanille", un agent noir. Tous deux doivent faire sauter un navire transportant des missiles pour le compte d'une organisation terroriste. Mais le mari de Clarisse, jaloux, est là lui aussi et ignore tous de leur mission. Written by
There were several plus points as far as I was concerned; Danielle Thompson working with her father Gerard Oury again and Sabine Azema and Pierre Arditti, arguably one of the most consistent pairings in French cinema. Not a lot of originality plot-wise; Azema is an ex-spy out of the game for a decade but persuaded to take on one more mission which wouldn't be all that bad if hubby (Arditti) were not almost psychotically jealous, especially since on the current mission she is posing as the wife of a handsome hunk and is obliged to lie to Arditti. Naturally he discovers that she is not where she said she was going and sets out to catch her inflagrante. That's basically all there is to it and in lesser hands it would be the wrong side of ho-hum but we are, of course, talking Thompson, Azema and Arditti or, to put it another way, Class.
