I am looking for a DVD or video of this film made in 1967. This is a thriller with an excellent plot. All happened in the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean sea. It is all about the relationship of a tourist, whose name was Stan coming to the island, with a local nice, blonde, tall woman, Hèléne. The film showed the difficulties of this relationship and external factors and people causing the problems. Action is seen all over, interesting scenes in hilly areas of Corsica are seen as well as the beauty of this island. One will never guess where the truth is and what was the cause for all these fights against a simple tourist, only at its end one will realize what's going on. The guilty people were not so while the innocents either.
José Giovanni directed the film and wrote its plot. This French director, born coincidentally in Corsica, is not very famous but he directed some very original films. Let's hope that this brief comment may revive this interesting film with the editing and production of a multilingual DVD.
