Comedy
After his first two features in the early 60s (The Love Game, The Five-Day Lover), Philippe de Broca, a former assistant to Francois Truffaut and Claude Chabrol, was taken by some to be a member of the French New Wave—an impression that was quickly undermined by the glossy commercial fare that followed, including this enjoyable 1964 thriller romp with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Francois Dorleac. If memory serves, this is swell light entertainment—there's a nice score by Georges Delerue, and the original screenplay was nominated for an Oscar—designed to autodestruct as soon as you see it.
