There are many different run times for this film. The Euro versions run the longest and the US/UK versions (known as The Night Caller)run the shortest. However "The Night Caller" contains some footage not seen in the longer running time versions. The US version runs 91 minutes while the UK version runs about a minute shorter (with some violence cut out.) See more »
This movie was a replacement in France. It marks the entry of a new criminal type(Minos) in a scenery unprecedented(the cold tower).The introduction is very efficient,a woman alone in her apartment,harass by the voice of Minos. Commissaire Letellier will be change his méthods for catch Minos. The opposition between the old-fashion criminal(Marcucci) and the modern(minos) is the symbol of a new area. The stunts are incredible(belmondo=keaton and Jackie Chan)specially the chase on the subway.The Veber's dialogues are very punchy. 8/10
