Eve of destruction
24 January 2011 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

This is not for all tastes .Most of the viewers might mistake it for a spy thriller which it is in a way.The movie begins with the well known picture of the big mushroom and it deals with the peril of the atomic war .The cast and credits are as good as those of a James Bond movie but in a diametrically opposite style.The narrative style is even more bizarre and may put off a lot of viewers .Daniel Emilfork ,who plays the (mad?) scientist ,is the most sinister-looking actor of the whole French cinema ;he could have been our Bela Lugosi,our Boris Karloff ,had he been given decent parts.Add Jacques Dufilho and Serge Gainsbourg who are not exactly what you call hunks.This is a curio.It may be your up of tea.I must admit it's not mine.
