That was the greatest French TV series of the sixties.Inspired by Louis Feuillade ,it's an extravaganza around the Louvres which effortlessly surpasses cheap enigmas à la "Da Vinci Code" .Special effects kept to the minimum,leaving the lion's share to the actors (particularly Juliette Greco and Madame Sylvie) ,mysterious and eventful ,it is an absorbing yarn.The French held their breath for more than one month when it was screened for the first time in 1965.It 's been imitated since,they even dared a dismal remake some years ago,but these black and white miniseries are a must if you can find the DVDs.A wonderful Xmas present for nostalgics.
