Forgotten first film from a promising film maker who did little else afterwards..
7 July 1999 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

Cast includes French stars Jacques Dutronc, Annie Girardot and Jean-Claude Brialy. Political thriller made it a candidate for US remake. Good script, good set, good acting and a nice Land Rover jeep. Unpredictable ending. Not a great flick, but comparable to most Hollywood thriller. Somewhat ahead of its time. I remember it 20 years after seeing it. What went wrong here? Films are like people. After they stop being seen, they stop existing. A candidate sleeper. Given a print in the video store circuit, I foresee a fair distribution. Someone must put his hands on rights and script.
