Alain Corneau is a French film-maker who broached several kinds of film: thriller (série noire), musical movie (tous les matins du monde). Here, he tried his hand at the adventure movie and we can say that his transition to this kind of film is far from being successful. It's clumsily filmed and not very original. The plot is thin and rather trite. Moreover, this story is supposed to be told in a comedy tone, well in this case, where's the humor? It's a movie in which there is no trace of humor or it appears but very slightly. A conventional end doesn't help matters. At the end, Corneau made a flat movie that suffers from a certain over-simplification.
