Storyline

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 Guy Bellinger

Alternate Versions

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 »

the actors . and nothing more
9 October 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

one of films only for fans. and not for every fan. because it is a real delight to admire Liv Ullmann , James Mason or Charles Bronson acting. but not in this case. first - the roles are only cages for crush the potential of each actor. the second - the story is not only well - known but almost boring. the past invading the present and events far by the same confrontation from Les Miserables. so, a predictable story, the same fights and tension, bad boy who becomes the good guy , the old fellows looking revenge. all as a ball from different rags. short , a B movie and this status represents the real problem because only memory remains the flour mask of James Mason and the pain of Liv Ullmann in a more than uncomfortable role.
