Joe Martin, a quiet American, lives a quiet life in the South of France renting boats to tourists. He is happily married to Fabienne and has a twelve-year-old daughter named Michèle. But the quiet man has a past: ten years before, Joe (then Moran) had escaped with four other convicts, among whom the sadistic ex-mercenary Katanga. Seeing the latter brutally kill an M. P., Joe had abandoned his accomplices and left with the car. One night, Captain Ross, Katanga, Whitey and Fausto re-appear..Written by
To receive a UK 'A' cinema certificate the film was cut by the BBFC to remove the sound of a neck break and a brief scene of nudity, and to edit the shooting of a man with a flare gun. It was later reissued with a 'AA' (now 15) certificate and the cuts restored. See more »
This film has a cast of all time greats of the Silver Screen, James Mason(Ross)"Lolita" who tries to hide his British accent, but he occasionally slips. Liv Ullman(Fabienne Martin) looks beautiful in this picture and plays a wife to Charles Bronson(Joe Martin)famous for his "Death Wish flicks" and the late Jill Ireland(Moira) who was married to Charles Bronson in real life. Throughout the film, there is always a car being driven through mountain roads around and around, and a desperate car chase to seek a doctor and then proceeds to run back over the same mountain roads. The car hits all kinds of cars, ditches and never seems to have a dent or broken windshield. If you like Charles Bronson, Jill Ireland, Liv Ullman and James Mason when they all looked young, this is worth watching. However, the plot is way out in left field!!!
