Storyline

Louis Rapiere aka Tiger is sent to Port-a-Pitre (French Guyane), to supervise the recuperation of a treasure from a sunken ship. A group of revolutionaries pirates the ship and robs the treasure, intending to sell it to an international terrorist organization, named Orchid. When he gets there, he demands that the French authority arrests the revolutionaries, but trying to prevent a general strike, the police does nothing. The Tiger finds himself acting alone, in a paralized territory - as the revoltionaries incited the people to the general strike anyway... and competing against American, Russian, and German spies. Everybody is very interested in the treasure, a rare mineral with tremendous impact on arms development, now about to fall into the Orchid's clutch. Written by Artemis-9

Trivia

After the success of his first venture into the spy-thriller genre, Code Name: Tiger (1964), director Claude Chabrol was invited to make another film in the same vein. That film was to be Le Tigre se parfume à la dynamite (1965), it was intended to be more of a copy of the James Bond films which were hugely successful worldwide. The only difference was that Chabrol didn't have the resources compared to the likes that were availble to the Bond films, so rather than attempting a straight lift, he opted for something more on the lines of a spy parody, similar to Georges Lautner's The Great Spy Chase (1964) and Jean-Charles Dudrumet's Killer Spy (1965), a genre that was also proving to be popular at the time.

Surprisingly weak spy film from Chabrol
13 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

You would think that the name Claude Chabrol attached to a mid-1960s Eurospy thriller would guarantee at least an above-average sample of the genre, maybe even something comparable to the James Bond pictures of the era. Sadly, the opposite is true: "Our Agent Tiger" is one of the weakest films of its type, not even matching the standards of similar films that were made during that period by relatively anonymous directors. Though there is one interesting shot every 20 minutes or so, the film is often technically inept, with poor transitions from scene to scene (of course the full-screen, worn-out and badly dubbed current prints don't help matters). The script is incoherent to say the least (this exchange about sums it up: "I want you dead" - "Why?" - "I don't have time to explain things"). Roger Hanin has close to zero appeal as the lead; think more George Lazenby than Sean Connery here. Margaret Lee is always an asset, but she's given very little to do. This one is for die-hard Chabrol completists only. * out of 4.
