| Only for the sake of the actors!
Denys de La Patellière it's not one of the great masters of the French cinema, I don't know to what extent the lack of directorial talent or the lack of super screenplays... This film, without the presence of some great actors, starting with Anthony Quinn, would be very boring. The other big names, Omar Sharif, Akim Tamiroff, Bruno Cremer, Robert Hossein, Orson Welles, Massimo Girotti, Grégoire Aslan, Folco Lulli, are OK in a completely uninteresting story. Horst Buchholz is not a great actor, he's just a nice boy, the forever adolescent type. The beautiful Elsa Martinelli also has a small role.
