The directing is flawless and very interesting, although you always wonder where the director drives at in this scheme where a man, looking like a hired gunman - and certainly not a perverse - takes a beautiful woman as a sort of hostage. But this is not a two people movie, two people alone in a flat. That's only for the first part. The overall film could although have been a stage play, theatre. I don't understand why this feature was not widely released, at least since 1967. Bruno Cremer was not a great actor in this time, but he became since. This is not a boring film, but it could be a short film. I am also afraid that many viewers found many things unexplained in this more than weird movie. But worth watching.
