Although it's fairly well-produced and shot in beautiful European locations (Paris, Vienna), this film (which I saw under the unlisted on IMDb title "Spy Hunt In Vienna") is a generally dull example of its genre (the Euro-spy thriller). For one thing, there is little action, as the main character - agent simply walks through the various locations and engages in some form of action not more often than once every 20 minutes. The people he is searching for may or may not be hiding within a traveling circus, which results in some overlong circus numbers. There are also some moments that are downright absurd: someone tries to kill the hero on a train, he fails, he runs away and the hero doesn't even bother to run after him; at least a dozen bad guys surround the hero in an underground train station and he escapes by causing a small explosion; but the most laughable of all is what happens to the suitcase containing the device that everyone's been after the whole time. The film even disappoints in the women department, as the two best lookers (Senta Berger and Paola Pitagora) have VERY limited screen time. *1/2 out of 4.
