Storyline

During his absence, secret (and normally undecipherable) documents have been stolen from Andrei Smoloff, a cultural attaché at the Soviet Embassy in Paris. Through an indiscretion, the French Secret Services are made aware of the affair and a team consisting of Captain Jean de Lursac and Vigo Currici is set up by the "Commander" to pursue the matter. Meanwhile Smoloff is summoned at the Soviet Embassy by Borghine, the chief of the Russian Secret Services in Paris. The victim of the theft has to struggle hard to prove his innocence. But is Smoloff really innocent as he claims or does he play a double game? And is France connected in any way with the events? It will be up to Jean and Vigo to find out. Written by Guy Bellinger

A good buddy comedy and a pleasant espionage case.
3 May 2020 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

"Les ennemis" is before all a little espionage comedy: confidential documents have been stolen in the Russian embassy and the man in charge of these documents has disappeared.Then begins the dance: Borghine, chief of the Soviet secret service wants to know what happenend with Smoloff, the cultural attaché.Thanks a cleaning lady the French secret services know about the theft, and also the agents of the FBi begin to been interested in the case.And now begins also the buddy comedy, the team (Jean de Lurzac-Vigo Currici) ,respectively Roger Hanin and Claude Brasseur will investigate this case and live some surprises, all this with some touch of humour. Just enjoy this little espionage comedy, where American agents speak English, where Russian speak Russian and where Claude Brasseur communicates with Pascale Audret in German whith a terrible French accent !!
