Critics reviews

The story does twist on unanticipated romantic complications, particularly the unforeseen appearance of the stubborn wife of a British agent kidnapped by the clan, nagging the airport authorities and wreaking havoc with the rather outrageous plot. All of which, in the end, leaves you a little thirsty for the visual rigour and atmospheric melancholy of Melville, but it’s probably Verneuil’s most satisfying film.
