The multinationals work behind the scenes...
25 May 2005 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

...and stay behind the scenes.A bizarre cast gathers French actors(Chabrol's favorite ,Michel Bouquet,Bruno Cremer,Pierre Santini ,Henri Serre -remember Jim in "Jules et Jim"?-) ,an actress who was also the script writer,under another name,and American stars such as Joseph Cotten and Dennis Hopper.Plus Donald Pleasance in a three-minute appearance.

Because of a passport,a woman is involved in a story she does not understand at all (the same goes for the viewer).The plot is too diffuse,the stakes too vague to successfully drag the audience.Hints at the third world , its cheap workforce and nukes are not convincing,even if the picture of the newspaper on the dead body is impressive enough.And the title is pretension itself.
