| Hidden agenda.
Jean-Pierre Dasagnat's first effort "les étrangers" has a pretty good reputation;but his sophomore effort "vertige pour un tueur " is a muddled affair.

The screenwriters try to conceal the paucity of their story (a settlement of scores ) behind a desultory script ,with absolutely implausible scenes -the hero running behind an airliner about to take off -and a large part which bears more than a distant resemblance to René Clément's "les félins" (1964) in which a fugitive takes refuge in a mansion where two (only one here) beautiful women have (has) a hidden agenda .

Unlike Jane Fonda's and Lola Albright 's in Clément's thriller,miss Koscina 's playing is minimal,to put it mildly ,and is limited to put on simpering airs ; when she shoots into the water ,she's downright ludicrous.

On the plus side ,Marcel Bozzuffi ,who's rarely the lead ,is efficient ;so is Michel Constantin ,but unfortunately , his presence on the screen does not exceed a few minutes .

A stodgy brew.
