Very enjoyable, fun French Euro-spy movie
1 July 2019 | by shaksprynSee all my reviews

This film has a lighter, wittier touch than many Euro-spy pictures of the 1960's. Yes, plenty of bad guys bite the dust, but the mood is not grim. Our male lead has a good amount of charm and a sense of humor. And he's quite handsome. A big plus for this film, in my view, is that it convey a very French sense of gallantry and sophisticated flirting. Nadine Sanders, our leading lady here, is simply a knockout! Tall--very tall--with masses of blonde hair, model-slender, and with a wonderfully aristocratic, refined beauty; one wishes she had starred in a lot more films. Some reviewers suggest the pace is slow. I did not find it so. The movie held my interest throughout and never dragged. The story allows a real relationship to develop between the two leads, which is a huge asset. Also--I'm American, and watched it on dvd with subtitles; that worked fine. I'd say, if you like Euro-spy, give this one a try. I think you'll like it.
