Paul Lamiani, a former spy now managing a restaurant, has to take on duties again on a gangsters affair involving his best friend.
Claude Sautet directed one third of the film after Maurice Labro fell ill.
When Paul is meeting Raymond for the first time, as soon as he enters the house, Raymond lectures him in the hall. You can clearly see during this scene a rough cut during Raymond's speech. The actors don't have the same position and the intonation changes, indicating they were not able to shoot this scene in one go.
