The French cinema is capable of many things, but the James Bond-type spy thriller is apparently not one of them. This particular effort lacks an intriguing plot, has no flair for action, and can't provide sparkling give-and-take dialog for its leading man and leading lady.
Sylva Koscina, always better than her material, looks good but has little of substance to do. Gerard Barray displays moments of charm but his prowess in fist-fights is never very persuasive. He does, however, get de-shirted and flogged in what may be the screen's third best example of a man being suspended by his wrists so that his feet don't touch the ground during the course of his punishment. (Okay, the two better examples are Charles Bronson in "Chino" and Charles Starrett in "The Mask of Fu Manchu.") Incidentally, Barray's flogging ranks 30th in the book, "Lash! The Hundred Great Scenes of Men Being Whipped in the Movies."
