Trivia

All long the shooting, every member of the crew - technicians, screen player and actors - ignored how the film was about to end, nor who was the real evil character of the movie. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning, the terrorists drive their cars right behind the tram - on a piece of street that is marked not to be used by cars. This would have raised suspicion with the police. See more »

Not bad but...
28 November 2017 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

... I would have wanted to know exactly what was the spying object of all those characters?...Total mystery, no one mentions anything about that. About the music, Morricone is the greatest no doubt about it but, the music for this one, which I like it very much, and I knew it before watching the film from an old audio-cassette, is more suitable for a war movie, I see already the German tanks advancing in formation on that... Lino Ventura, which I like very much, unfortunately, is the same Lino Ventura, he's playing himself. I like more chameleons, totally versatile actors (example Gary Oldman), which in every role they are different, you don't even recognize them. Michel Piccoli, Bruno Cremer, Heinz Bennent and Bernard Fresson are all better than Ventura in smaller roles. Very impressive Marc Mazza, the bad guy (also a very good bad guy in the masterpiece directed by René Clément Rider on the Rain/Le passager de la pluie made in 1970).
