A very young Lino Ventura, not in the lead but very good, most convincing of all, in a role of killer. Maurice Labro knows the craft but the film does not look like a spy alert movie, but as an old sentimental melodrama. The music of the film makes a great disservice, it is not at all appropriate. Henri Vidal is not at all fit for the role of Coplan. Dominique Paturel of "Coplan prend des risques"(1964) is the true Coplan. And Claudio Brook of "Coplan Saves His Skin"(1968) is much better. A pleasant surprise is Jess Hahn, who in films like "Topkapi" or "The Saint Lies in Wait"(1966) "Le Saint prend l'affût" original title, does not have very compelling roles in, here he is a very convincing villain boss.
