Trivia

Filming in Greece was difficult, as the notorious military coup of the Greek colonels in 1967 had turned the country into a totalitarian dictatorship. Director Claude Chabrol was nonetheless able to insert a short scene at the beginning of the film in which a man is arrested by the authorities at the border, with the strong implication that he is to be tortured and murdered. When the film was shown in Britain in a dubbed version (under the title, "The Road To Corinth", a simple translation of the French title), this scene was cut, although it was later restored for a television showing.

All Greek to me
22 July 2010 | by davidholmesfrSee all my reviews

Add Seberg and Greece to Chabrol and you'd expect something to sizzle. Unfortunately sizzle is not quite the right word - damp squib, maybe? The plot, such as it is, has been well set out by others so I won't rehash that. Whilst the story and the events are ridiculous, there is, nevertheless, a certain style here. The opening scene, where a magician enters Greece and the Greek border guards find the incriminating goods, promises a good film (I understand that this scene was cut from the version originally shown in the UK - as it's one of the best scenes goodness knows what it must have been like watching it back then). But sadly it's all downhill from there although the style and flair are still there. Who could fail to admire the dapper, but ruthless, killer in his white suit, white shirt, red tie and matching red-banded straw boater? Fortunately Chabrol returned to more masterful output a year later with "Les Biches", a film that is so far removed from this it's hard to believe it's the same director.

And who on earth dreamt up the dumb English language title for the US release? Surely "The Road to Corinth" would have worked.
